SARATOGA SPRINGS — The 2020 Cantina Kids Fun Run, which supports children’s healthcare at Saratoga Hospital, is going virtual. The annual event will be held Friday, Oct. 2 through Sunday, Oct. 4. Registration is $10 for this year only.

Now in its 13th year, the Fun Run was the brainchild of Cantina restaurant owners Jeff and Heath Ames, who wanted to express their gratitude for the lifesaving care their daughter has received at Saratoga Hospital. The couple teamed up with Saratoga Hospital Foundation to bring families and organizations together for a healthy outdoor activity and a worthy cause.

“The event is so popular, we knew we had to find a way to hold it this year,” said Mary Solomons, executive director of Saratoga Hospital Foundation. “Going virtual will help keep our community safe without disappointing young runners and their families.

“Despite the change, sponsor support has remained strong,” she added. Returning as presenting sponsor is New Country Motor Car Group, which will host the Fun Run’s packet pickup.

Since its inception, the Fun Run has raised more than $560,000 and made a difference for every pediatric patient treated at a Saratoga Hospital facility. Last year, the run raised over $70,000 and attracted more than 1,000 race participants.
