Half Marathon on the Bronx River Parkway

Posted By: Advancing Care

If you tried to merge onto the Bronx River Parkway on the Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend, you may have noticed hundreds of runners — all pounding the pavement to raise money for a good cause.

More than 700 runners participated in the Healing Half, a half marathon/10k run benefitting Westchester Medical Center,  which started at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. The race also featured a “Kids Dash” competition for young participants.

After the event, the runners got a chance to rest and recharge at a fall festival at the finish line, complete with music, activities and fall treats.
