Run in the Country

September 24, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Adoption STAR and Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village (BNHV) are co-sponsoring the 5th Annual 5K Run in the Country on Saturday, September 24th, 2016 starting at 9am.  In addition to the race, there will be a Kid’s Fun Run on the grounds starting at 10am, followed by a post-race celebration at BNHV where music, food, beer provided by Flying Bison Brewing Company,  and water will be provided.  All proceeds will be split evenly between Adoption STAR and BNHV.

As two Western New York-based non-profit (501c3) organizations, Adoption STAR and BNHV are proud to work cooperatively to make this race a success.  As a child welfare organization, Adoption STAR takes pride in its efforts to create “forever families” for children in need of a home, and the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village strives, “to preserve and interpret the story of Buffalo Niagara for the people of today and the community of tomorrow.”

While our organizations undoubtedly have two different missions, we’re excited about this collaboration and united in our commitment to make the race a fun, family-friendly event.
