As you may recall, last year's Tuckahoe Challenge Race, led by race director, Trustee Renée Howell, attracted over 400 runners and generated $30,000 netting $8,000 in community donations to the Friends of the Tuckahoe Library. The Tuckahoe Beautification Committee are our co-beneficiaries of the race.
By far, the race is currently the lead donation revenue generator for the Friends. I have registered and was able to add an additional donation amount to my registration, too.
However you would like to participate, when you register for this year's race, please do so as a member of the Tuckahoe Library Friends team!
Let's demonstrate our collective support for the Village, for Trustee Howell's efforts to promote fitness, community philanthropy, and support for all of the excellent services and programs that the Tuckahoe Public Library provides to people of all ages in our Village.
The Friends of the Library was one of two Village organizations to receive significant donations during fall 2021 as a result of the organizing of the 45th Annual Tuckahoe Challenge Road Race held this past September. Friends President Shannon McDonough interviewed the race director, Deputy Mayor Renée Howell, about how she got her start in running, how this important community event continues to grow, and how local business can get involved as we drive toward the 50th Anniversary. Thanks to Sonis Studios for recording our conversation.
