The 10th anniversary of the Sitrin Health Care Center’s Annual Stars & Stripes Run~Walk for our Nation’s Heroes will be held on Sunday, October 2, 2022, at the SUNY Poly campus, and will feature a 5K run, 5K wheelchair race, and 2-mile walk. Registration will take place at 7:30 a.m., with the wheelchair race starting at 9 a.m., the run at 9:05, and the walk at 9:10.
This event is the primary fundraiser for Sitrin’s Military Program, which provides comprehensive, complimentary care to post-9/11 veterans and service members affected by post-traumatic stress, suicidal ideations, traumatic brain injuries, depression, and other combat-related conditions. In addition to innovative treatment, Sitrin offers the Military Civilian Coalition, designed to promote camaraderie, advocacy, educational opportunities, and transitional support to civilian life. The group meets at various locations in the community and enables veterans and civilians to interact through social and athletic endeavors. Activities include the annual Warrior Retreat at Camp Sitrin, TRX Suspension Training, golf, fly fishing, gardening, yoga, biking, therapeutic hand drumming, and more.
Everyone who preregisters will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. In addition, both the 5K run and wheelchair race will be chip timed, providing runners with accurate times and instantaneous race results.
Presenting Sponsor of the Run~Walk for the 10th consecutive year is Adirondack Bank.
