This race is held annually at Yale to celebrate the life of Julia Rusinek, her passion for running and her commitment to making a difference in the lives of children. The run is a fundraiser for LEAP, a program to promote success among the children in New Haven. The youth is engaged in mentorships to create a sense of responsibility, a feeling of belonging and empowerment. Julia's run contributions to LEAP total over $100,000 Starting and finishing at Yale University's Cross campus, the 4 mile run passes stately mansions and loops through Edgerton Park. Kids under 12 can enjoy the 0.7 mile Fun Run. After the race there will be refreshments and a raffle.
