We can all make a difference on Sunday, October 16th!


Our 10k is a classic. A challenging course with outstanding support while you’re out there. Come join the fun.


Our 5k is really enjoyable – it’s a pretty flat and very scenic course.  You can run or walk it, and make friends along the way. Perfect.

One-Mile Fun Run

This event is great fun for everyone!  Plus — every child participant gets a commemorative medal!

“When in doubt…do something!”

Harry Chapin had a goal: he wanted to end world hunger during his lifetime. So he did something about it.  He raised and donated millions of dollars by performing “one night for me, and one night for the other guy” throughout his career.  He co-founded World Hunger Year (now WhyHunger), and Long Island Cares (now The Harry Chapin Food Bank).  He lobbied Congress and President Carter to get involved.  And he encouraged his fans to make a difference.

Harry’s Music

Harry’s music and his humanitarian work are forever linked together.  Here’s the “Chapin anthem” that he sang at the end his concerts.

Thank you to all who came out to our many events!

The folks at East Hudson Media did an outstanding job in 2015 of capturing both the spirit and the excitement of the event.
