The Annual Hope Runs Here 5K Run/Walk benefits the Long Island 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk
LI2DAY is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2004 that raises awareness and much needed funds for the women and men in our community who are fighting breast cancer.
LI2DAY has raised over $4 MILLION from its signature event, the 35-mile, two day breast cancer walk. 100% of the funds have assisted nearly 90,000 Long Islanders affected by breast cancer, aided local breast cancer research and granted $120,000 in scholarships to 48 high students whose parent or guardian has been affected by breast cancer. Local grassroots breast cancer organizations receive funding from LI2DAY for programs that assist with medical expenses, transportation, prosthetics and wigs, physical therapy, child care, research, education and more.
