race was originally organized by the East End Road and Trail Runners
Club, RRCA to benefit Katy's Courage 501(c)3 with net proceeds of
this year's race going toward local scholarships, The Katy's Courage
Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer
Center in Manhattan and in support
of the newly formed partnership: "Katy's Kids @ CMEE,"
with the goal of beginning in the spring of 2015 to offer play and expressive
peer support opportunities for East End children and
adolescents in collaboration with the Children's Museum of the East End. The focus of the peer group support will be grief or
loss, including areas such as death of a loved one, divorce, adoption
and immigration, and will utilize modalities such as art, music, poetry, dance/movement and drama in a friendly, familiar and supportive environment.
