About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Nicholas Pedone 5K is once again taking place on the North Shore of Long Island, in the beautiful city of Glen Cove, NY.   
This race was founded in 2013 for our local warrior, Nicholas Pedone, who at age 7 was fighting childhood cancer.  The community rallied to come together to raise funds for his medical expenses and family.  Approximately 6 weeks after the 1st Annual 5K took place, Nicholas lost his battle to cancer.  The event attracted over 750 people during its first year.
Since then, the Nicholas Pedone Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was founded in his memory.  The foundation’s mission is to “deliver smiles to courageous kids fighting cancer”.  To date, the 5K is the foundation’s largest fundraiser. All proceeds from the race will go towards placing smiles on the faces of these brave warriors. 
The race starts in front of the Glen Cove High School and proceeds on the roads of our beautiful community. The race ends in the back of the high school with an award ceremony on the football field along with music, refreshments, snacks and more. 
The race is held in September to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In 2014, this race attracted over 1200 people and we anticipate the numbers to grow this year.  
We are a USA Track and Field sanctioned event and our course is USA Track and Field certified! Runners and walkers are welcome! 
Cant wait to see you on September 6th! #FightHardSmileBig
