Niskayuna Strides for Sandy Hook 5K

NISKAYUNA, N.Y. – The Niskayuna Moms on the Run held a memorial run/walk in honor the 26 children and teachers killed in the Sandy Hook tragedy.

The 5K course started and ended at the town hall, looping through Orchard Park. A $25 donation was encouraged.

According to the organization, per the request of Sandy hook families, a portion of the funds will be distributed locally.

One-hundred percent of your donation will help three causes:

The Newtown Park Gift Fund to build a memorial in honor of the teachers and children lost at Sandy Hook

The Van Antwerp Middle School Best Buddies Program

Niskayuna Fire Department in honor of Grace Kline, a 14-year-old Van Antwerp student who passed away on Jan. 4, 2013 as a result of a fire in her home.
