"On November 21, 2010, we accomplished a goal that had been haunting us for sometime. Strength for Life held its inaugural run - due to the success of the SkyDive fundraiser we had the courage to take the plunge.
Given a budget of nearly $9000 we started our uphill battle and we won!
325 registered by Nov 19 and 180 on the day of the race.
Strength for Life netted about $8500.”
This is to invite you to take part in our 5th Annual "Run to Remember"and our 3rd Annual 3K Wellness Walk to be held at Sunken Meadow State Park on Sunday, November 23, 2014. Along with the Kids Fun Run we have something ‘active’ for the whole family.
Last year, through ‘record breaking’ cold and wind gusts of 50 mph we achieved ‘record breaking’ proceeds for our programs, netting over $20,000. On the day of race, 99 individuals woke up and came out to register and support us regardless of the frigid temps bringing the total to over 600 registered participants.
In 2013 with the support of individuals, like you, Strength for Life was able to host over 160 cancer survivors to attend our FREE exercise classes and wellness retreats. Many of the testimonials on Great NonProfits describe their experience with Strength for Life as “life-changing”, “powerful” and “nurturing”. Since our inception in 2007 we have helped over 1000 cancer survivors learn tools to achieve optimal wellness.
This year Strength for Life became a full beneficiary of the LI2Day Walk for Breastand Other Women’s Cancers, received a grant from Frank J. Antun Foundation, Allstate and the Island Outreach Foundation; held our First Annual “Zumbathon"; our Third Recognition dinner honoring 3 incredible survivors who emanate our motto to “Inspire, Strengthen and Empower,” and we presented Our First “Evelyn Knapp Benevolence Award"; lastly in October we were beneficiaries of three incredible fundraisers. With this success we have been able to add classes in Hampton Bays, and planned are classes in Huntington and Brookhaven in early 2015.
Our success on the day depends your attendance and support. Of course, there are a range of sponsorship opportunities available from race day shirts to “in-kind donations", and your help is appreciated.
