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 16 years, more than 2,500 runners and walkers have completed the 3.1 mile course. More importantly, more than $200,000 has been raised for many charities, including 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 17th annual race will be held on Saturday, September 16th at 10 AM at Healey Field. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit Gigi's Playhouse and Hope's Door. After a successful run of supporting our community, we will be hosting our last Woodlawn Run for a Cause this year. It has been great while it has lasted, and we look forward to welcoming an amazing crowd on September 17!
