The Ellen Hermanson Foundation, sponsor of Ellen’s Run 5K race/walk, celebrates 17 years of leading the fight against breast cancer on the East End, Sunday, August 19 at 9 a.m., rain or shine. Ellen’s Run, a community celebration of life for visitors and locals, begins and ends at Southampton Hospital. Ellen’s Run is the principal funder of the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital, which serves the entire East End — the rates of breast cancer diagnosis and mortality are among the highest in the state. Congressman Tim Bishop and Senator Kenneth Lavalle will be on hand to start the run. There will be T-shirts for everyone and trophies for the top three female and male runners and medals for the top three women and men in each age category. There is also a Runner’s Raffle that is over the top and a gorgeous piece of jewelry for the first breast cancer survivor to cross the finish line! Register today online.
