The NYC 5K Schlep 2016: Raising awareness and funds for Breast and Ovarian Cancer
Battery Park NYC, Sunday, June 5th--- On an overcast June morning, hundreds of people came out to support the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center’s Sixth Annual Cheryl Diamond NYC 5K SCHLEP Run/Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer. The picturesque scene at Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park drew schleppers, runners, walkers and volunteers of all ages and abilities to participate in a 5K race and walk on the Battery Park promenade, opposite the Statue of Liberty. Participants travelled from all around the Tri-State area and from across the United States to support the cause, some from Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, and even as far as Israel.
