— The fourth annual Run To Remember Doug Hoffman 5K fun run/walk will be held Saturday, Aug. 17 at 9:30 a.m. at the Plattsburgh Recreation Center on the Base Oval.

Prior to the run will be a “Brain Buster Bustle,” a one mile fun run for kids under 12.

Proceeds from the run will benefit the Plattsburgh Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center.

“All the proceeds stay locally in the three county area, and it’s to help raise awareness for early alzheimers, and to help be vigilant in the prevention and treatment of alzheimers,” said run director Debbie Frederick.

The Plattsburgh Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center provides evaluations, education and information for families and people with alzheimers, provides counseling, peer connections, and operates the third Age Adult Center programs in Clinton, Essex and Franklin county.

Pre-registration before Aug. 14 is $10, race day registration is $15. Pre-registration forms are available at the Plattsburgh Recreation Center, or by emailing runtoremember10@yahoo.com. The first 25 people registered will receive a t-shirt.

Run-day registration starts at 8 a.m. The “Brain Buster Bustle” starts at 9 a.m., and the 5K run starts at 9:30 a.m.

The Run to Remember can be found on Facebook at: 4th Annual Run To Remember Doug Hoffman.
