If I could say in one word what makes the CRSS Race for Hope so great, it would have to be “people”.

The big-hearted, community spirited people who register to run or to walk (or both!); who volunteer and arrive at 6am on race day with an enthusiastic attitude and big smile; who tirelessly raise money from friends, family and co-workers and perhaps even from their own pocket.

There are so many wonderful people who make this event possible! I think it’s high time we “meet” some of them.

Starting this week, we will be featuring mini-profiles of some of these very people of which I just mentioned.

About CRSS Race for Hope

Since 2009, the Capital Region Special Surgery Race for Hope events have raised over $200,000, of which all monies have been dedicated to fundraising, since overhead costs are underwritten by Capital Region Special Surgery. This year's 5K will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017. The major goal of the Capital Region Special Surgery – Race for Hope Fund, in partnership with the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region, is to make grants to not-for-profit organizations/programs serving uninsured and underinsured patients who are experiencing a financial hardship related to a brain, head, or neck cancer diagnosis in the Capital Region (Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, Washington counties). Thus far, these proceeds have been allocated to the following local 501c3 organizations: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc. C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital, Ellis Hospital Foundation, Inc., Saratoga Hospital—Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center, and patient services at St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center.
