Kensico Hosted Its 2nd Annual Run/Walk for Alzheimer’s Association:
Despite downpours, over 125 runners, walkers, volunteers, employees, and guests turned out for the second annual Kensico 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 29 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Hudson Valley. Participants enjoyed a catered breakfast, fabulous raffle prizes, and a run/walk throughout the cemetery grounds. A preliminary tally suggests that we reached our goal of $20,000 thanks to the generosity of our sponsors listed below, the online registration fees and contributions, and raffle ticket sales.
