As you may already know, Costello’s Ace Hardware is a proud sponsor of Friends of Karen’s 8th Annual Walk-Run at the Long Island Marathon on Saturday, May 3rd with a 5K Walk-Run at Mitchell Athletic Complex in Uniondale, NY and Sunday, May 4th with a 10K, Half and Full Marathons at Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, NY.
Friends of Karen has helped thousands of families with children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses for more than 35 years. Last year alone, the organization provided assistance to 1,480 children. The walk-run is a fun and exciting way for Friends of Karen to continue to help these families and an easy and exciting opportunity for us to be involved as a company in the important work they are doing in our communities. Our participation will further help assist these families with emotional help, sibling support, rent or mortgage payments, heating and electric bills, health insurance, medical copayments, prescriptions, transportation for medical treatments and so much more.
