The first Sitrin Stars & Stripes run/walk to benefit wounded warriors was a resounding success. Over 500 people were at SUNY IT to to support the cause.  Some held banners, while others made shirts to honor and remember those they were walking or running for.

Wheelchair basketball, archery, laser shooting and an obstacle course were also set up for everyone to enjoy after the walk.  The obstacle course looked way to hard for this gal, especially after walking what felt like 10 miles rather than 2.  Laser shooting and archery were more my cup of tea.

The fundraising efforts will support Sitrin's Military Rehabilitation Program, which provides care for wounded warriors who have post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, post-acute substance abuse, and other combat related conditions.

 

A big thank you to Kristine Bellino, Jim Rondenelli and Gino Geruntino from WIBX 950, who also took part in the walk with me. We both had cameras to cover every angle of the run/walk. Check out their photos
