The 5th annual Run, Walk & Roll 5K and Miracle Field Stroll is scheduled for Sunday Sept. 29, and I’d like to encourage EVERYONE to take part.

Not a runner? No problem. You can walk. You can even bring along the baby in a stroller, or your dog. The main thing is that you come, because it’s going to be great exercise with a lot of new friends, doesn’t cost too much AND it benefits a great cause.

The annual Run, Walk & Roll benefits Challenger Miracle Field, an adaptive sports field for children with developmental, physical or intellectual disabilities. Specifically, this year the event is raising money to help complete the all-inclusive Karpus Family Play with Possibilities Playground,

This year’s race will be even better than ever, since for the very first time, it will begin and end right at Miracle Field, behind Town Hall on Ridge Road. In its four previous years, it started at Thomas High School, but it just seems RIGHT that everything is focused around Miracle Field this year. After all, it’s a beautiful facility and it’s a great opportunity for more people to see it and realize that.

The race course will begin at the corner of Hard Rd. and Van Ingen Drive. Runners will go north on Hard Road, onto the Route 104 bike trail, around the North Ponds loop and back to Miracle Field, where refreshments await.

The Miracle Field Stroll with take place on the field and on the sidewalk by the soon-to-be-built Karpus Family Play with Possibilities Playground! You’ll enjoy the field that so many children of different abilities have been playing on and enjoy music to dance along with as you walk.

Cost is just $20 for the 5K (for both runners and wheelchair athletes) and $17 for strollers. On the day of the race, the cost goes up to $30 and $22, so try to register early.

It all begins at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday Sept. 29. Click here for more information and to register. And to read more about the amazingness that is Miracle Field, click here.
