This is CCNN's largest fundraiser of the year and we need your help to make it great. We would not be able to continue to serve the vulnerable populations of this community without such events. Make a difference in your community, and help a neighbor in need.

This event will be held at Community Care Network of Nichols's headquarters which is, 139 Roki Blvd. Nichols, NY 13812.
The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. but we encourage runners and walkers to arrive around 7:45 a.m. for check-in purposes.

North Lehigh Avenue Walking Trail Project

At a recent council meeting Sayre Borough manager David Jarrett explained that among four projects being considered for completion in the borough over the next three years is a walking trail.

"The goal of the project is to develop a walking path along the railroad tracks that would connect the former Lehigh Valley RR freight station with the downtown. The walking path could then be extended along the railroad tracks off of South Lehigh Avenue toward Athens Borough."

Over the past year several truckloads of clean fill have already been deposited along the tracks by local contractors and graded by borough employees.
