The 5th annual Race4Hope returns to Borodino (Spafford), NY on Sunday, May 29. This scenic, 24-mile, timed bicycle race starts and finishes at the intersection of East Lake Road (Route 41) and Rose Hill Road, seven miles south of Skaneateles.
This race was inspired by Dick Shaffer, a Borodino resident and triathlete, who passed away from cancer in 2006. His “never give up” spirit lives in encouraging wellness and finding a cure for cancer. Helping children with cancer, all race proceeds will support research at the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. Additional donations are welcome.
SkanRaces.com promotes wellness and active lifestyles in central New York by conducting races and funding health-related programs with the proceeds. Among many activities sponsored by SkanRaces.com, fundraising in 2010 offered the ability to donate $5000 to support programs for children suffering cancer at the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital, a free swimming lesson program for any seven year old during 2011 at both the Auburn YMCA and the Skaneateles YMCA and Community Center, and several other wellness and recreational programs.
