What does this race benefit?

Get ready to make a difference as you lace up your running shoes and hit the streets for the Ellenville Run Like the Wind! Not only will you be pushing yourself to the finish line, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause.

Over the past few years, the race has been dedicated to giving back to the local community by supporting food pantries in the area. But we’re not stopping there, this year we’re also focused on providing scholarships for underprivileged kids in the area to help them join Little League and soccer teams.
