About the Bench 5K Run/Walk

Dance Team and Wolfie

The 7th Annual The Bench 5K Run/Walk and 1K Fun Run will take place on Saturday, May 9, 2015.

Proceeds from this event benefit Play Fit - Stay Fit! (www.playfitstayfit.org), a comprehensive wellness program for child survivors of cancer and their families. Play Fit - Stay Fit! provides physical fitness, nutrition counseling, and psychosocial support for the entire family free of charge. It is part of the Sunrise Fund at Stony Brook Long Island Children's Hospital and the many special programs that help children and families affected by pediatric cancer.

As in the past, there are a number of ways to support Play Fit - Stay Fit!:

  1. Make an individual donation – Simple! Go to “Donate”
  2. Make an individual donation in support of someone – Go to “Donate” and when you make your individual donation, identify the person who asked you for the support. It may be a friend, family member, or a local child who asked you to support this cause in his or her name.
  3. Solicit donations in your name and for your team – Go to “Register as a Fundraiser” and identify yourself as a “fundraiser” and join a team of fundraisers. Tell potential donors about this website and how to donate in your name.

Why be a “fundraiser” and part of a team of fundraisers???

Individuals AND teams responsible for raising the most money will not only be recognized at The Bench 5K Run Awards Ceremony on May 9th, but they will also receive a special gift. We are looking for local youth sports teams, school classes, hospital departments, academic departments, etc. In addition to recognizing the team that raises the most overall money, we will also recognize the local youth sport teams that raises the most money.

To register for The BENCH 5K Run/Walk and 1K Fun Run on Saturday, May 9th.
