NYRA Proud to Host the WALK for St. Mary's Kids

NYRA was proud to host the annual WALK for St. Mary's Kids at Belmont Park on Sunday, May 19th. St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Frerichs, was joined by Grand Marshall, NYRA Vice President, Elizabeth Brackin, and a host of volunteers and supporters of St. Mary's to WALK for the kids. They showed their support on a rainy day at Belmont Park, but their smiles made it seem like the sun was shining! We look forward to welcoming them back next year and we are proud to serve as a community partner to this outstanding hospital.
