Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation (NFTBHF) is proud to announce its 9th Annual Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at the Clifton Commons in Clifton Park. Last year we raised $40,000 to help local children fight cancer! In 2017, Nick’s Fight granted over $100,000 to The Melodies Center at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med and to local families struggling to heal their children. This year we are proud to honor 7-year-old Ali Bawla, who was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on May 22, 2017, when he was 6. Ali will be in treatment for the next 3 years, ending in May 2020. Ali is an active first grade student in the North Colonie school district. Ali is one of approximately 90 children who are diagnosed every year just in our area.
This is a day for everyone affected by cancer to come together and make a difference in children's lives. It’s a time to raise one another up, so that families with children battling cancer can get through this tough time knowing they are not alone.
Feel free to run, walk, enjoy the carnival, and meet some amazing people. All the money raised stays local. We will do our best to make sure this is a day to remember. Thank you!
