The Greenstein H.O.P.E. Fund Second Annual 5K

Sunday April 6, 2014, Livingston High School Oval, Livingston, New Jersey

FACES friends Faith and Marc Greenstein are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children with pediatric epilepsy. Recently, the Greensteins established a special fund at Saint Barnabas Medical Center to Help Overcome Pediatric Epilepsy. The Greenstein H.O.P.E. Fund enables nationally recognized neurologists and pediatricians to come together to share innovative approaches to epilepsy care, research breakthroughs, and the latest thinking on treatment options.  

In April 2008, Faith and Marc's son, Ethan, was diagnosed with Sturge-Weber Syndrome, a primary symptom of which is epilepsy. Ethan has had multiple stays in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Saint Barnabas Medical Center due to his seizures and Dr. Devinsky is his neurologist.

The Greenstein family, in partnership with Saint Barnabas Medical Center Foundation, is dedicated to raising philanthropic support to better understand and manage epilepsy and to enhance the lives of children and families living with this complex condition.  

Please join the Greenstein family as they raise support and awareness for children with epilepsy cared for at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.  The Strides for HOPE 5K and 2K Family Walk begin at 10:00 AM on Sunday April 6th at the Livingston High School Oval.  Runners and walkers will enjoy a USATF-certified course that offers quick and flat sections with a few inclines.  Timers at miles one and two, water stations, and a clock finish are featured.

Kids’ sprints are open to children 12 years and younger, door prizes including an iPAD will be awarded, and family-friendly entertainment and refreshments will be on hand.  Race shirts are guaranteed to pre-registrants and while supplies last, on event day.
