Hundreds of runners will hit the streets of Syracuse on Sunday August 26 to help children and families in Central New York.

It’s About Childhood and Family Inc. serves CNY through empowering families to develop independence in handling life’s struggles. Their focus is to advocate for all children by providing innovative child-centered support and programs.
