Burke Rehabilitation Hosts 2023 Heels & Wheels 5K and Fun Run
Burke Rehabilitation Hospital will hold its annual Heels & Wheels 5K Race & Kids Fun Run on its White Plains campus (785 Mamaroneck Avenue) on Sunday, April 30th.
The event, which begins and ends on Burke’s beautiful 61-acre campus, takes place rain or shine and is open to walkers, runners, hand cyclists, and wheelchair athletes of all ability levels. It features a 5K race for adults and a fun run for children ages 4-9, as well as inclusive activities for wheelchair athletes.
“Heels and Wheels is Burke’s mission in action,” said Burke’s Director of Development Elizabeth Walsh. “It’s a great way for everyone to learn about what is possible and what they can do – whether it’s the first timer who never thought they’d finish a 5K, a stroke patient who is challenging themselves to get back on the course, a hand cyclist who has never raced before, or a seasoned athlete trying for that personal best!”
Registration for the 5K is $25 for adults, $10 for youth runners under 14, and free for children 4 and under. These discounted rates are available to those who register prior to April 28th. Online registration can be completed at: 2023 — Burke Heels & Wheels 5K & Family Fun Run — Race Roster — Registration, Marketing, Fundraising. Registration packets can be picked up beginning at 8:45 a.m. on the day of the event. The 5K starts at 9:45 a.m. The Kids Fun Run begins at 9:30 a.m. Refreshments will be available at the finish line.
Heels & Wheels is open to the public, and community members are encouraged to attend and cheer on the athletes. Volunteers are also needed to help in areas such as registration and water stations and to act as traffic guides.
