MVP and Saratoga Bridges Team Up for 11th Annual Great Pumpkin Challenge


Located at 16 Saratoga Bridges Blvd., Ballston Spa, NY, Saratoga Bridges provides services and programs for people with disabilities and their families. The annual Great Pumpkin Challenge is a marquee event to benefit the people they serve.....come on out for some brisk fall excercise and have a wonderful time walking or running a 5K, or running a 10K, through Saratoga Spa State Park!

The Challenge will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22, but participants who register by this Saturday, Oct. 1 will also receive a long-sleeved, moisture-wicking t-shirt and free raffle ticket for awesome prizes! Alternatively, walkers and runners can register on the day by arriving early!

Bring the whole family...younger runners under age 12 can participate in the Kids Fun Run; be sure to arrive early for this race! The 5K walk/run and 10K run will begin at 9:30 am., and races start and finish at the Columbia Pavilion. Linger a while over delicious refreshments for all!

What a wonderful way to celebrate the fall season...the park will hopefully have held on to some glorious foliage. It's a great way to introduce the spirit of Thanksgiving to our smallest athletes. Hope to see many friends and neighbors at the park!
