Our 3rd Annual 5K Run & Fun Run event presented by Orangetheory Fitness of Long Island couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you to everyone who joined us (in person and from afar). We are thrilled to announce with your support we raised over $55,000!!
A huge thank you to all of the people and businesses that made this event possible. Your consistent willingness to give so much back to our community is everything to us. You all are directly helping to make a difference for kids fighting cancer.
We especially want to extend gratitude to our awesome volunteers, to our dedicated board and to the inspirational cancer families we have gotten to know and love dearly. These groups had such a major impact on this event and we could not have done it without them.
Special thanks to Michael Sharinn from Mike Sharinn Photography for his time and talent in capturing photos to illustrate the day, Anthony Biondo from Pennylane Productions for capturing the heart of this event. Rich from Xtreme Entertainment for emceeing this year’s 5K, Brendan Dagan and his team from Elitefeats for all their hard work. And Bella Bragolii from Lux Flower Walls Long Island for donating the beautiful balloon towers.
As we celebrate the success of this year's event, we look forward to planning the 4th Annual Butterfly 5K & Fun Run in 2024. We encourage you to stay involved with the Daniela Conte Foundation by following us on social media and visiting our website for updates on future events and initiatives.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who participated, volunteered, donated, and helped to spread the word about the 3rd Annual Butterfly 5K. Your support has made a significant impact in the fight against childhood cancer, and we are grateful for your dedication to our mission. Together, we continue to create a brighter future for children and their families affected by pediatric cancer.
