2022 Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium

Poppie's People

On Thursday, September 29, we will participate in the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium for the third time! This 5k is a unique fundraising run/walk that uses the Stadium as its course. We'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take our own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field (where I usually make us go around a few times because helloooo it's the field of Yankee Stadium!).

We participate in this walk for the Baseball Encyclopedia, our Poppie. Unfortunately, Poppie passed away from cancer in 2011. He was special, and we feel his energy all around us. While we have participated twice in this walk, this is the first year that Anthony will be joining us! For those of you that know us and Anthony - you know that we all believe wholeheartedly that Poppie is Anthony's guardian angel and there's a strong connection there, despite never getting the chance to meet. We are honored and excited to participate as a trio this year.

Absolutely 100% of the money we raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.

We ask that if you can, please make a donation to our team - Poppie's People. You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received! 

Thank you for your support!
