Thank you for your interest in supporting the Dennis P. McHugh Foundation! The 14th Annual Run for Fun and Family Fair will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at 9:30 AM at Fly Wheel Park in Piermont, New York.
This year’s event will raise funds will raise funds to honor a longtime supporter of the Dennis P. McHugh Foundation and Dennis’s cousin, Peter G. Bohan, by supporting the Piermont Historical Society and creating a scholarship at Pearl River High School. Peter lived the majority of his 53 years in Rockland County, worked the BBQ at the Run for Fun for more than 10 years, loved walking the Piermont Pier and enjoyed all that the county has to offer. The Foundation will purchase a memorial bench, located at the Piermont Historic Train Station, from the Piermont Historical Society. Its mission is to preserve and protect the integrity of Piermont’s architecture, history and cultural heritage, and to celebrate the history of Piermont. In addition, funds raised during the Run for Fun will provide a scholarship in Peter’s honor to a graduating student from Pearl River High School.
Since 2004 — thanks to the help of our sponsors and others — we have honored the Foundation’s pledge of $500,000 to the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library and raised funds for numerous local charities and causes: for example, supporting United Hospice of Rockland County; the construction of housing for wounded veterans through Homes for Heroes; and the purchase and installation of life-saving AED defibrillators in Camp Venture’s community-based group homes located throughout Rockland County.
As we did last year, we are offering different levels of sponsorship for the Run for Fun and Family Fair:
