7th Annual Walk

Help Raise Funds & Awareness for Children and Families with Special Needs

Join staff, patients, friends, and family at the 7th Annual Walk for St. Mary’s Kids & Family Fun Day on Sunday, May 22, 2011 at Belmont Park, in Elmont, NY, to help raise funds and awareness for children and families with special needs.

This year will be more fun than ever as we walk for our kids and enjoy all the fun!

Join St. Mary’s kids, our Grand Marshals, and Team Jillidog as they lead the 1/2 mile and 2.5K mile walk around the beautiful Belmont Park.

Visit the NY Autofest Car show at the St. Mary’s event site featuring hot rods, classics, customs and rarely seen vehicles on display. This is a car lover’s dream!! Meet and greet Jillidog, the World’s only poker-playing dog as featured on Animal Planet. Owner, Rick Caran and Jillidog will present mini shows and training tips.

Don’t miss out on the Family Fun Day activities featuring live music, arts & crafts, face painting, pony rides, games, and lots of surprises for the entire family.

Today, 1 in 5 children has a special need. In New York State alone that’s nearly 800,000 children. Over 4,000 children and their families in the New York Metropolitan region and beyond come to St. Mary’s to receive care, learn to manage their illness or injury, and achieve independence and confidence.

While some walk to celebrate the accomplishments of St. Mary’s kids, and others walk in memory of a loved one; everyone walks to support the mission of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children- to improve the health and quality of life for St. Mary’s children and their families.

Help make a difference for St. Mary’s kids and join walkers at Belmont Park on Sunday, May 22nd. Your support really counts!!
