3rd Annual Run For Bereda 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk

Westfield, NY


Please join us on Saturday July 13, 2019 at 8:30am for the 3rd Annual Run For Bereda 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk in historic Westfield, New York. On July 18, 2017, the Bereda family experienced an unimaginable tragedy. Brennen (5) and Finley (1) were killed in a motor vehicle accident. Jorden (3), and Christina were both injured and taken to the hospital.

Christina and her family are avid members of the running community. Christina is from Westfield, NY and graduated from Westfield Academy Central School. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit the Bereda Children's Memorial Fund, which is a not for profit fund set up through the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.

Historic Westfield, NY is located in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country. The 5K takes you past grape vines and has a spectacular view of Lake Erie. The village of Westfield is home to many antique shops, restaurants, bakeries and surrounded by numerous wineries.
