Katy’s Courage 5K

On an unseasonably cool Sag Harbor morning, hundreds of participants raced through the village in support of Katy’s Courage. The 5K was held last Saturday, April 21. Ryan Fowkes was the first to cross the finish line, with a staggering time of 16:48.

Katy’s Courage was founded by Brigid and Jim Stewart after their 12-year-old daughter lost her courageous battle against a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. Katy’s struggle was courageous and inspiring to all who knew her. The not-for-profit organizes fundraising events like Saturday’s 5K and donates the proceeds to pediatric cancer research, local school scholarships, and Katy’s Kids @ CMEE.
