This year’s 18th Annual FAM 5K “Fund” Run/Walk was held at the Cobleskill Fairgrounds on September 24th and supported Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care (CAHPC). CAHPC provides the very best care for patients and families dealing with a serious, progressive illness. Hospice's sole purpose is to "Make Life Easier" for everyone involved. Hospice's team of professionals understand exactly what their families are experiencing and are able to provide the support and guidance they want and need. CAHPC serves local residents of Schoharie, Delaware, and Otsego counties.
“We continue this fall event because these local charities rely on our support. Our goal is to help raise awareness about each organization while providing financial resources,” said Race Director Peter Sweetser. Since the event’s inception in 1994, the FAM 5K’s mission has been to endorse and promote the qualities of family, good health, and service to the community.
The FAM 5K, featured in Runner’s World, InvestmentNews, and the Wall Street Journal, uniquely awards FAM Funds mutual fund shares to both the male and female winners in several age categories. Participants included 18-year race veterans, multigenerational families, professional racers, and walkers of all ages.
The proceeds from the race are donated to one of five different local charities on a rotating basis: Catholic Charities of Schoharie County, Catskill Area Hospice & Palliative Care, Habitat for Humanity of Schoharie County, Schoharie County ARC, and Schoharie County Community Action Program. The Adirondack Association of USA Track and Field sanctions the FAM 5K while FAM Funds is the main sponsor.
Schoharie County suffered devastating effects from Hurricane Irene and we want to help our community in whatever way we can. Additionally, Schoharie County Community Action Program accepted monetary donations for Schoharie County Flood Relief at the FAM 5K with 100 percent of the donations going directly to the Schoharie County victims.
