Honored! Dr. Lee @UAlbany and the wonderful UAlbany Athletes!








We are so excited to have University at Albany‘s Vice President and Director of Athletics, Dr. Lee McElroy as our awesome and inspiring race starter for a 3rd year! And thank you to the various UAlbany athletic teams and coaches who will be in full force volunteering again as well!  And may we also add that all of this wonderful community giving is (each year!) expertly organized and coordinated by the very wonderful (and all too humble!) Jen Svatik.  Yay!  Thank you, Jen and thank you, UAlbany!

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.
