Following the Katy’s Courage Skate-A-Thon and Love Bites, this year’s series of annual Katy’s Courage fundraisers and events continue next month with the 10th annual Katy’s Courage 5K on Saturday, April 9 in Sag Harbor, rain or shine. Proceeds from the 2022 event will be donated to local scholarships, as well as Katy’s Kids @ CMEE. Participants may register online in advance here.
Part of Katy’s Courage, Katy’s Kids provides a safe and healing environment for children, teens and their families as they grieve the death of a parent, sibling, close family member or friend. Sessions take place the first and third Wednesday of every month at the Children’s Museum of the East End.
On race day, registration and check-ins will take place from 7–8:15 a.m. and the run will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. Runners will start at 21 West Water Street, head north and make a right onto Main Street, turn right again onto Glover Street, run through the Redwood section of the course and finish back on Water Street. Cost is $25 in advance and $30 day of the race.
Katy’s Courage is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization honoring Katy Stewart, an inspirational 12-year-old girl from Sag Harbor who died from a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. The organization is dedicated to supporting education, children’s bereavement counseling and pediatric cancer research.
