Sertoma 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk

Niagara Falls, NY

Race organizers have elected to cancel the race due to low participation. Refunds will be issued. No further details are available at this time.

Please join us on Sunday August 20, 2017 for the inaugural Sertoma 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk at Hyde Park in Niagara Falls, New York. The event will coincide with their annual Summer Picnic and will feature a nice flat course (design under review) that will start and finish near the Hyde Park Ice Arena.

The Sertoma Club's mission is to improve the quality of life today for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss through education and support. Today over 50 million people in the United States alone suffer from some kind of hearing loss. With our technological life style, that number continues to grow. Once hearing loss occurs, it cannot be restored. We can imitate it with hearing devices, but it will never be as clear or concise as it once was.

After hearing is lost it becomes one of the most expensive parts of life to maintain. Some insurance companies will pay for testing or will give discounts on equipment, but many will not pay a dime. Our passion is to create a world where everyone who chooses, can hear us. And our passion will compel us to raise awareness of our cause, educate those willing to understand, and support those who need our support. Hearing health needs allies and advocates, educators and healers. Sertoma communities share the common belief that attention paid to hearing health adds quality to lives and communities.
