BRIARCLIFF — The Fourth Annual Briarcliff Has Heart Memorial Day Walk-Run will be held on Monday.
This year more than 500 participants are expected to turn out for this annual family-friendly event that has become a local tradition. Proceeds benefit the Briarcliff Manor Public Library.
The event features an official chip-timed 5K (3.1 mile) run and 2-mile walk. Starting time is 8:30 a.m. with registration beginning at 7:20 a.m. at Law Park Pavilion, adjacent to the Briarcliff Library.¬† The route is through the streets of Briarcliff Village.
Runners and walkers from all over are welcome to participate. Post-race refreshments and awards for all age groups will cap off the event.
In addition to the efforts of many volunteers and the Village of Briarcliff Manor, the 4th Annual Briarcliff Has Heart Run/Walk would not be possible without the generous support of the community sponsors that really help to make things happen, says the organizers.
“This has been the most successful year so far in terms of sponsorship, both from businesses and families,” said Diane Kahn. The Platinum/Title sponsor for this year is Dr. Renuka Rao Bijoor, DDS, of Briarcliff Pediatric Dentistry.
The Gold sponsors are Wilson & Son Jewelers and Jake Chatzky of the Chatzky Family Foundation. Other 2011 sponsors include: Thalle Industries, Houlihan Lawrence (Briarcliff Manor Brokerage), Leg Resource, Eric T. Lebenson Real Estate, Club Fit, Robison Oil, Camp Nabby, Guard Hill Realty (Rivertowns), Goldie’s Table Matters and Better Homes and Gardens/Rand Realty (Briarcliff Office).
Those eager to donate, but unable to participate on race day, can go online and take part in the “Virtual Run” program.
