Date & Time
Come join us on Saturday, Sept. 24, when the Brain Aneurysm Center of Northwell Health’s Neuroscience Institute, along with the Brain Aneurysm Foundation (BAF), host Long Island’s Eighth Annual Brain Aneurysm Awareness Four-Mile Fun Run/Two-Mile Walk at Jones Beach State Park.
Proceeds from the walk benefit Northwell Health’s Brain Aneurysm Center and the BAF, helping support essential research into how to help prevent cases of ruptured aneurysms.
Hundreds of walkers -- including brain aneurysm survivors, their families and friends -- are expected to attend the fun-filled event. Many doctors, nurses and staff members from Northwell Health’s Brain Aneurysm Center will also be on hand to show their support for the many patients they have treated over the years. Among those who will be attending are David Chalif, MD, and Avi Setton, MD, co-directors of Northwell Health’s Brain Aneurysm Center.
“One of the goals of this annual event is to increase awareness about the warning signs of a brain aneurysm,” said Dr. Chalif. “The symptoms can include severe headache, nausea, blurred or double vision, stiff neck or neck pain, pain above or behind the eye and loss of sensation.”
Registration for the walk begins at 8:30am at Jones Beach State Park, Field 5, 1000 Ocean Parkway, Wantagh, NY. The start time is 10am and the event will be held rain or shine.
The registration fee is $25 through September 10th. After September 10th, the registration fee is $30, so register early! Entry fee includes the cost of parking and snacks. Tee-shirts will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.
