Pick your challenge and set your own goal. Between Saturday, October 3rd, 2020 and Sunday, November 1st, 2020, Temple Sinai of Middletown NY will be presenting the 1st Annual Benjamin A. Gilman Virtual Run/Walk. This virtual event is meant to inspire wellness, fitness, and healthier lifestyles. On account of the current circumstances, we have decided to make our event a virtual challenge. We realize the continued risks associated with gathering and have found a unique way to generate awareness and have everyone connect while achieving their personal goals. So Run, Walk, and Unite with your sport, with nature, your inner-self, your goals, with the best you that you can be, and then unite with virtually everyone else who is seeking the same! Missed out on your favorite races, not eligible to run the marathon, pick your virtual challenge.
