Contributions that were added to entry fees by participants and donations from others were used to support our grants totaling $7,000 to youth groups & schools to combat underage drinking, impaired driving and teens’ lax use of seat belts. Plus this year we awarded scholarships totaling $4,000 to 6 deserving seniors from the region. That’s $11,000 given away in 2014 thanks to the generosity of many.

Sean’s Run Weekend 2015 The 14th edition of Sean’s Run Weekend kicks off with Sean’s Ride on Saturday, April 25th. With 50-mile, 20-mile and 10-mile scenic routes, bicyclists of all abilities can enjoy the fun and amenities of the area’s premier early-spring supported ride. Bike jerseys go to the first 200 registered and a great spread of refreshments awaits at the conclusion of each ride. Saturday the 25th also features the Zumbathon® and Super Saturday Sean’s Run for Special Needs Kids.
The ever popular Sean’s Run 5K and Meghan’s Mile go off on Sunday, April 26th. 1,400 runners and walkers are anticipated and this classic foot race and community walk has grown into one of the biggest events of its type in the region. The first 1,200 that sign-up to traverse the scenic course through charming Chatham village will receive the always desired Sean’ Run t-shirt. Participants will enjoy a variety of refreshments when they cross the finish line.
Before the run on the 26th, the World Championship Battle of the Belts will be contested – a fun interscholastic competition to increase use of seatbelts by teenagers. Also, we will introduce the winners of our Scholarships and the schools and youth groups that were awarded our grants to implement programs that combat underage drinking, impaired driving and lax use of seatbelts.
We dedicate the 2015 Sean’s Run to Max Richard Kelly, a very popular outstanding student and athlete at Columbia Greene Community College, who was killed as a passenger in a car crash on December 31, 2012. His 19-year old buddy, the driver, was intoxicated.
