Castleton to host 5K benefiting Leukemia and Lymphoma society

CASTLETON — In two weeks, community members will gather on the heights above the Hudson for the first annual Ready, Set, Cure 5k benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.

This year, the event is being held in honor of Emily Segarra, the daughter of a foreign language teacher in the Schodack Central School District who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, known as ALL in November of 2015. She is scheduled to undergo her final round of chemotherapy on January 20, 2018.

“we want to show her support and let her know that her strength inspires us during her ongoing battle,” reads the event’s registration page.


The race will kickoff at Castleton Elementary School at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Packet pickup will begin at 7:00 a.m.

Anyone interested in running or walking in the 5k is asked to register here. If you have questions or are looking to volunteer, contact Andrew Fleck via Email,
