The snow is finally gone and the 7th
Annual Contractors For Kids 5K Walk/Run is ready to go! Lace up those shoes and come out to support
this worthy charity that assists Long Island families in financial crisis due
to illness or injury to a child.
This year's 5K will donate portions of its proceeds to
the family of a 20 month old child (Anthony) who suffers from Epileptic
Encephalopathy caused by a rare genetic defect.
Anthony was suffering up 1000 seizures a day. He is currently on an adult medication which
is helping but is extremely dangerous.
He and his family have to travel to Boston to meet with his neurologist
to monitor the effects of this medication.
His illness has caused a major financial hardship for this family and
CFK has stepped in to help.
On April 26th, Contractors For Kids will hold its
seventh annual 5K run/walk in an effort to raise money for families suffering
financially due to their child’s illness or injury. Concurrently the Three Village CSD will be
running a Health & Wellness Fair.
