This race was formed in 1999 dedicated to raising money for the battle against Pediatric Cancer and the funding of a scholarship in Paiges name for Baker High School in Baldwinsville. Paige was a 1st grade student when she was diagnosed with Leukemia. She was treated at Both University Hospital in Syracuse, Ny as well as The Childrens Hospital in Boston, MA. Paige passed away after a bone marrow transplant later that same year in 1994. Her Parents were approached in 1997 to organize the run in her name through Palmer Elementary school. For 10 years it was run around Palmer but in 2008 moved into Syracuse with the Taste of Syracuse Festival.
Run the race for a good cause, then taste some of the best food in Syracuse. 2 Pluses in my Book!
