Staatsburg, NY, October 03, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- What has hundreds of legs, moans and drools, and raises money for autism? It’s the Special Olympics-New York Second Annual rUNDEAD 5k, hosted by Anderson Center for Autism. Saturday, October 25th on the Anderson Center campus located at 4885 Route 9 in Staatsburg, run as a zombie or run as the hunted on a scenic (and terrifying) 5K trail lined with plenty of undead obstacles along the way.
Registration for individual runners is $30 – choose your pace and your place in the race as a “Fast Food” runner, “All You Can Eat” runner, Crawler Zombie, or Hunter Zombie. Don’t want to go it alone? Bring the whole family and register as Family Pack "Fast Food" Runners for $100. Registration begins at 8:30am. All zombie runners must visit the “Mob Tent” upon arrival for their transformations. Race begins at 10:30am. All proceeds go to Special Olympics-New York and Anderson Center for Autism.
Anderson Center for Autism, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with autism and their families, and Special Olympics-New York look forward to celebrating the second year of their partnership this October as the benefit race continues to grow across the state. Last year, Anderson was the first mid-Hudson Valley host for the race, and is proud to announce that rUNDEAD is here to stay.
Other rUNDEAD races are scheduled for New Rochelle, Staten Island, Niagara University, Saratoga, Rochester, and Massapequa Park.
Anderson Center offers its own Special Olympics team. The program has grown over the last several years and has become unified to make the Anderson Athletics Blue Knights, combining the Children’s and Adult Services athletes to become one of the largest and most successful Special Olympics Programs in the Hudson Valley Region.
