Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation announces its 9th Annual Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K on Sun., Sept. 30, 2018, at Clifton Commons in honor of Ali Bawla.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and what better way to support local childhood cancer patients than to participate in the Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K? The race begins at Clifton Commons in Clifton Park on Sunday, September 30th, and includes a Kids Walk, Kids Carnival, a 2-mile walk, a Zumba warm-up and a 5K. This year’s run is in honor of Ali Bawla. Ali is an active 7-year old who was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May, 2017. Ali is one of approximately 90 children who are diagnosed every year from our area.
Preregistration is happening now and dri-fit shirts will be given to those who sign up by September 7th. Registration opens that morning at 10:00am.
All money donated helps local children being treated at The Bernard & Millie Duker Children Hospital’s Melodies Center at Albany Med. Nick’s Fight to be Healed helps families pay for medical and travel costs and reduces stress for the entire family through its many.
This organization is completely run by volunteers, and was started in 2009 in memory of Nick Cammarata who battled leukemia for only four months before he passed away at only 13 years old. For more information on this foundation and how to register for this event, visit the fighttobehealed website.
