St. Mary’s 5th Annual Walk and Family Fun Day a Huge Success

Sunday, May 18th, 2008 was a great day for St. Mary’s kids. NY Jets Defensive Back Darrelle Revis led our two courageous Grand Marshals, Rosie and William, along with thousands of supporters in the 5th Annual Walk for St. Mary’s Kids and Family Fun Day at Belmont Park. Over 3,000 friends of St. Mary’s rallied behind Revis to help raise funds and awareness to support programs for children with special needs.

A fantastic Family Fun Day awaited the Walkers’ return, with activities such as the Jets Quarterback Toss, the NY Islanders bounce house, pony rides, inflatables, arts and crafts, magic shows, and loads of entertainment. The New York Racing Association pulled out the stops and named the first race of the day, The Race for St. Mary’s Kids. Special guests included Karen Carsen from 106.7 Lite FM, Senator Frank Padavan, and Councilman Tony Avella.

St. Mary’s would like to thank all of our walkers and sponsors:
