All proceeds from The Run Jimmy Run Charity 5K benefit the Alzheimer's Association WNY.

Here in Western New York, the Alzheimer’s Association is committed to provide and enhance care and support for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Run Jimmy Run is committed to provide funds to the Alzheimer’s Association WNY to help keep their programs and services completely free of charge. Since 2013, Run Jimmy Run has raised nearly $100k for the Alzheimer’s Association WNY.

It is the generous support of our runners and sponsors that this was made possible. We are proud to be working within our community to help those families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The purpose of this race is to celebrate the life, accomplishments and charitable spirit of Mayor Jim Griffin through a fitness-oriented event designed for all ages.

We would like to thank the great people of Buffalo and Western New York for your support and the generous contributions of our sponsors and partners who will help make this a premier race and a great Buffalo tradition!

Thank you for your continued support of this cause – now more than ever.

The Run Jimmy Run Committee and the Griffin Family
