Code Blue 8K Raises $30K!

By | Sports

SARATOGA SPRINGS – A chilly morning on Saturday, March 26, gave a notably powerful reminder to everyone that was gathered at High Rock Park. 

 

With early morning’s temperatures hovering around 32 degrees (the trigger temperature to activate Code Blue), it showed that, without the existence of the Code Blue Shelter, many less fortunate individuals in our community would have been subject to harsh conditions overnight - on this night, and many others, despite what has been regarded as a ‘mild’ winter. 

 

The second annual ‘Blue Needs You’ 8K race, along with a Kids fun run, cheer squad and Easter Egg Hunt to benefit Taylor’s Heroes, was a success by any measure because of an involved community that participated in various ways. The money that was raised (a preliminary estimate is around $30,000) will go ensuring nearly 40 individuals have temporary respite from hazardous winter weather from November until April. At the Code Blue individuals are surrounded by caring volunteers and staff, have a safe, warm place to sleep, showers and a hot meal.
