Sasha’s Superhero Run 5K & Kids Run

May 1

Sasha’s Superhero Run is a 5K run/walk and a kids run, held in Halfmoon, NY. The race was organized by the family and friends of a local boy, Sasha, who passed away unexpectedly as a baby on Christmas Eve in 2016. The superhero theme of the event was adopted to honor all parents whose babies and children passed before their time, as it takes superhero strengths for a parent to go on after a child dies. This event helps bring the community together and helps loss families to connect and honor the memory of their heavenly children.

Since Sasha’s family is Ukrainian, our 2022 event will be raising funds for the children of Ukraine, affected by the horrific war waged on its territory. The race proceeds will be split between the Global Ronald McDonald House Charities and few smaller local charitable organizations, based in Western Ukraine, providing direct assistance to displaced children and their families.

In 5 years since its inception, the race has donated $54,300 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR), helping provide housing, meals, and support to families of seriously ill children, treated in the area hospitals. When a child is fighting for their life – having their family close-by is the best medicine.
