The New York GYRIG event was begun in 2010 in memory of the original CoveyLove - my sister, Amy Covey - who lost her life to colon cancer at the age of 33. Over the past ten years, Team CoveyLove and GYRIG participants have raised more than $500,000 for colon cancer awareness and prevention in New York City.
This year, the race is VIRTUAL. A trip to NYC is not required. You can run, walk, swim, bike, skip rope, or even paddleboard to achieve your goal. Sunday, October 18th is the official date of the "Race", but you can do your bit anytime between now and then. Please join us as a fundraising team member, a monetary supporter, or both, as we strive to this year's team goal of $15,000!
