Come join us for a good time, for a good cause! Funds raised will support our Nutritional Support Program! Last year, our event assisted SBSNE, Inc. in supporting four families with a monthly stipend for the length of one year to go towards nutrition costs. Let's increase that number and help many more families in 2018!
What is the purpose of the SBSNE, Inc. 5K Run/Walk?
We have goals of producing a Nutritional Support Program for our children's nutrition costs. Ultimately, we would love to help at least twenty families nationwide with a monthly stipend for one year. With your help and participation, SBSNE, Inc. will have the opportunity to provide families with stipends to go towards their child's nutrition (whether it be organic foods, tube feed, vitamins, electrolyte solutions, etc.). This stipend will be in the form of a gift card, which we hope to offer on a monthly basis.
