Miracle Weekend 2012

Stroll for Strong Kids

Stroll for Strong photoEach child carries with them an incredible amount of strength, power and resilience. Every doctor and nurse has the power to heal. And every supporter of Golisano Children's Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center is an enormous force for good. This year, the Stroll for Strong Kids is celebrating the superhero within us all – with capes, costumes and plenty of family-friendly fun.

This year's supercharged event, sponsored by Abbott’s Frozen Custard, will take place on Saturday, June 2, on the River Campus at the University of Rochester, located at 252 Elmwood Ave. in Rochester. The 5K race is back in action for its fourth year. Runners should be on their marks and ready to run at super speed at 8:30 a.m. Stroll participants will begin their annual trek at 10:30 a.m. and are welcome to gather at the rugby field next to Fauver Stadium prior to the start time with team-themed t-shirts, banners and an energy level of heroic proportions.

Last year was a record-breaking year, with more than 4,200 participants and over $340,000 raised. These numbers are hard to beat, but superheroes conquer insurmountable odds by leaps and bounds, and by teaming up with our many incredible hospital advocates, we’re sure that this year will be even better than the last.
