BENEFITING: HELEN HAYES HOSPITAL FOUNDATION INC

EVENT: Helen Hayes Hospital Classic

EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014

THE STORY:

It's safe to say that Lucille "Mama Lu" Shuler was the happiest, most energetic and fun loving person the halls of Helen Hayes Hospital ever saw.  When she wasn't busy taking care of her grandchildren (and prior to that for about 30 years, a good portion of NR community children), she spent every available day working at HHH taking care of her patients.  Her love for her family, friends and patients could not be matched.  Join "Team Mama Lu" in the Helen Hayes Hospital 10K Race & Fun Run.  We are going to throw some "Jersey Boys" on our playlists and put green shirts on our backs to salute this very special woman who was taken from us far too soon.

True classics never fade away- they come back stronger than ever, and that’s certainly the case with the Helen Hayes Hospital Classic 10K Race & Fun Run. This incredible, inspirational athletic event for individuals of all abilities is scheduled for Sunday, October 5, 2014. You are invited to show your support for the runners, wheelchair racers, kids and families who will be challenging themselves in support of the region’s premier physical rehabilitation hospital.

 

When it debuted in 1983, the HHH Classic Race was a pioneer in promoting fitness and competition among runners and wheelchair racers. Over 15 years, the event grew into one of the metropolitan’s area’s largest and most anticipated races. When the last racer crossed the finish line in 1997, hospital staff vowed to bring the Classic back, and now, we look forward to doing just that – with all of the powerful excitement, tremendous fun and immense support that made the Classic a favorite.

 

In a nod to its successful history, the 2014 HHH Classic Race will follow the same challenging course through Haverstraw and Stony Point while also incorporating some brand new aspects. There will be racers using handcycles and exoskeletons - the latest in rehabilitation technology - a family fun activity zone, live entertainment and of course, lots of opportunities to cheer on all of the participants- whether they are running, wheeling or strolling the Fun Run.

 

This year’s race is being named in honor and memory of Niles M. Davies, Jr., who recently passed away. Mr. Davies was a founding organizer of the very first HHH Classic Race and took tremendous pride in being a race sponsor. His unwavering support of Helen Hayes Hospital and the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation are legacies which inspire us all to bring back the competition and camaraderie of the Classic.

 

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation, which supports a tremendous array of rehabilitation programs, services and equipment, all aimed at helping patients rebuild their lives following catastrophic injuries and chronic disabling illnesses.

 

Now is your chance to get on board in support of the 2014 HHH Classic Race. Please consider supporting a friend, colleague, neighbor, employee, or other individual who will be participating in the Classic Race. You can quickly and easily make a donation in their name right here. Just click on the links and you, too, can be a Classic supporter!  

 

After a 17-year hiatus, we are hugely excited to be bringing the HHH Classic Race back home. We look forward to welcoming back lots of Classic sponsors and racers and introducing the Classic to a new generation of participants.  Most of all, we look forward to counting you as a true HHH Classic Race friend and partnering with you to ensure that all patients have access to the incredible care and expertise available at Helen Hayes Hospital. See you at the finish line on October 5th!
