Description:

Alec's Run XIII will be held on April 29nd 2017 at the Half Hollow Hills High School West in Dix Hills
As Alec’s parents and founders of his charitable corporation, we have heard from quite a few people who are interested in Alec’s Run and wanted to know more information both about the run and what we do with the corporation we set up in Alec’s name. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and we welcome your interest. Alec’s Run is a race that is held around the streets of Dix Hills on the fourth Saturday of April every year. It is a 4 mile race for runners and walkers that starts at 9:30- and there is a children’s Fun Run, a half mile race that begins at 9am.
This is the 14th year that we are holding this run which serves two purposes. It celebrates the life of our son, Alec, and it serves to educate people about the dangers vehicles can pose to young children, especially the blind zone behind cars which can extend to the length of most driveways in some vehicles. Alec wasn’t seen six years ago when, at 16 months, a loving grandparent backed over him. Over 100 children a year are killed by backovers. If a defective toy existed that killed that many children, it would have been pulled off the shelves immediately. Our mission is to raise awareness about this danger, since Alec was killed over 600- six hundred- children have died the same way.
Alec’s Run raises money that helps worthy causes. We support Kids and Cars; a child advocacy group that we worked with in Washington to get legislation passed that has car manufacturers addressing this problem. We were gratified to have had legislation passed on Valentine’s Day in 2008 that will mandate certain safety measures in cars by 2011. We remain hard at work on raising awareness and on consumer education-it is not a child’s death caused by negligent parents or caregivers, but a real visibility issue that will now be addressed by car manufacturers.
