Hochstein 5K 2016
Start Date/Time:
Saturday, October 01, 2016 8:00 AM
Description:

The sixth annual George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016, at 8:00 am. With a great course through Rochester’s Neighborhood of the Arts, the run/walk is open to all—from competitive runners and people using wheelchairs, to casual joggers, dedicated walkers, and entire families.

 

Be sure to register for the event at eastman.org/5k

 

Also called "The Philanthropy Challenge," the race aims to raise funds for George Eastman House as well as other nonprofit organizations that make Rochester a great place to live and work. The race is unique among Rochester running events in that George Eastman House staff and volunteers manage all of the event organization, but participants may form teams to raise funds for the charities of their choice. This approach honors both George Eastman’s commitment to good health and wellness, and his enduring philanthropic legacy, which continues to benefit the entire Rochester community.

Funds raised will support Hochstein's need-based scholarship program. At Hochstein, our mission is simple: to provide excellent music and dance instruction to anyone who is interested -- regardless of age, level of skill, background, or ability to pay. Every day, our students develop their talents with the assistance of our experienced faculty. Last year, 1,700 children and adults received financial aid totaling more than $200,000. A majority of children served by these need-based scholarships were from urban Rochester. By making a donation and/or participating in the 5K, you can support the school's mission.
