The mission of the Woodlawn Run for a Cause is to raise awareness and funds for a variety of causes in the Bronx and Yonkers, while encouraging good physical health. Over the past 12 years, more than 2,500 runners and walkers have completed the 3.1 mile course. More importantly, more than $125,000 has been raised for the following charities: Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center, Compassionate Care Hospice, Part of the Solution, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Calvary Hospital, Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, Bronx Community Health Network, Friends of Van Cortlandt Park, Mercy Center, Peace Outside Campus, Kalie Gill Family Foundation, National Brain Tumor Society, Ty Louis Campbell Foundation, HOPe Charity, Boomer Esiason Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, Quinn for the Win, Making Headway Foundation, and The Matthew Wallace Foundation.
We are happy to announce the 13th annual race will be held on Saturday, September 14th at 10 AM. The course will be slightly different than in the past due to construction at Indian Field; however, it will again begin near the Woodlawn Bus Stop at the corner of Nursery Road. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit Yonkers Partners in Education and NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness.
