27th Annual Ellen's 5K Run/Walk/Virtual
VIRTUAL UPLOAD TIMES & PHOTOS 8/21 -8/28
Ellen’s Run, an annual 5k (3.1mile) race, is the signature fundraising event of The Ellen Hermanson Foundation and an innovative, grassroots event, that raises awareness about breast cancer. Held on the East End of Long Island, where breast cancer diagnosis and mortality rates are among the highest in the state of New York, Ellen’s Run draws on the strength of the community and gives back by providing mammography screenings, support and education.
The First Annual Ellen’s Run attracted more than 500 participants and raised more than $62,000—an astonishing success for a first time event. By the third year, the amount of money raised had more than doubled. By its fourth year, Ellen's Run had become the largest race on the South Fork, with nearly 900 registered participants. As we approach our 27th year, Ellen’s Run has grown to over 1,000 participants and The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has awarded more than $5 million in grants.
About The Ellen Hermanson Foundation — Since 1997, The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has changed the medical landscape of the East End of Long Island, where breast cancer diagnosis and mortality rates are among the highest in New York state. With a deep commitment to the community, the Foundation gives back by funding state-of-the-art medical equipment and breast cancer screenings at The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and locations in Hampton Bays and East Hampton. Proceeds also benefit Ellen’s Well, a free psycho-social services program that provides social support and other healing opportunities for breast cancer survivors. No one is turned away from the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center for lack of insurance or inability to pay.
The Ellen Hermanson Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to ensure access to state-of-the art breast health care and to empower people affected by cancer.
