Race Two of Westchester Corporate Cup Set for August 15: All proceeds go to the Hope Community Services, a New Rochelle-based organization that’s become the largest emergency food pantry and soup kitchen in the region.
The second race of the Westchester Corporate Cup, a series of two 5Ks held every summer at Purchase College, is scheduled for 5 to 7:30 p.m. on August 15. These not-for-profit races were conceived as fun, after-work team-building events for Westchester corporations; networking opportunities for employees of area businesses; and a way to promote wellness in the community and raise money for a worthy local cause.
All proceeds go to the Hope Community Services, a New Rochelle-based organization that’s become the largest emergency food pantry and soup kitchen in the region. It provides and serves food to thousands of needy families and individuals annually, and provides permanent housing to homeless veterans throughout Westchester County via the City of New Rochelle Re-Housing Initiative.
The series is underwritten by race entry fees and the sponsorship of companies with a strong presence in the Westchester County business community. However, it is not exclusively for corporations and businesses. Individuals, families and other groups from the Westchester area who would like to participate for wellness or to support a good cause are welcome to run or walk.
Location: Purchase College, SUNY, 735 Anderson Hill Rd., Purchase, NY. For more information, including registration and sponsorship opportunities, visit CorporateCupRaces.org or visit Westchester Corporate Cup Races on Facebook.
