About This Activity

Join us for a beautiful day at Hellyer County Park in San Jose as we join together to raise money for Samantha Green. Meet at the Buena Vista picnic sites for a 9am start time. Race day registration and check in begin at 8am.

Who is Sammy?

Samantha Green was born with a very rare genetic condition: Microcephaly with Simplified Gyral Patterns Type 1. In addition to her primary diagnosis, she has cerebral palsy and epilepsy. At birth, her parents were told that their daughter would be a “vegetable” but Samantha has beaten the odds; she is walking and using her hands. She has amazed her doctors, therapists, teachers – and of course her friends and family.

Why are we Sweatin' for Sammy?

We are holding Sweatin’ for Sammy 2013 to raise the money necessary for a specialized therapy Sammy will attend this Fall. Samantha will attend Now I Can, an intensive physical therapy program that has shown great success with cerebral palsy patients.

Also supporting San Jose's Children's Playgarden

In addition to raising funds for Sammy’s therapy, a donation will be made to The Rotary Club of San Jose to help build San Jose’s only all-access Children’s Playgarden. The 1 ½ acre garden will provide a play experience where all children, regardless of their abilities, can play together side by side.
