“We relish the opportunity to bring the community together with the aim of creating possibilities for children,” said Brigid Collins, mother of Katy Stewart.
On Saturday, April 5, over 1,200 participated in the Fourth Annual 5K Run in honor of Stewart who passed away from hepatoblastoma. Attendees of all ages from 4 to 89-years-old ran, jogged or walked across the finish line. Among supporters was Walter Stewart, grandfather of Katy Stewart, who proudly crossed the finish line in loving memory of his granddaughter.
The event raised $50,000, which will be used for scholarships awarded to a Pierson and East Hampton High School student, a donation to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the creation of Katy’s Kids, a new partnership with the Children’s Museum of the East End.
