The Bronxville Chamber of Commerce announces the first annual “Yards for Yeardley” Road Race. The Chamber is honored to be partnering with The One Love Foundation whose mission is to change the statistics around relationship abuse by educating young people about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors. The 2.5-mile run will be held in Bronxville to benefit The One Love Foundation which has its headquarters located in the heart of Bronxville’s business district. “The Chamber’s hope is to raise awareness for The One Love Foundation within our Village and beyond,” said Nicole Tuck, Chamber Director.
The Run will start and finish on Meadow Ave by The Bronxville School.
Immediately following the finish runners will be directed to Park Place where run sponsors will have exhibits and each runner will be presented with a medal. “We have always been incredibly grateful for the early support we’ve received from our home community of Bronxville,” said Sharon Robinson, Vice-Chair of One Love and Yeardley Love’s cousin. “This race is a perfect way to punctuate our deepened commitment to serving Bronxville and greater Westchester with a new retail presence and a robust docket of new community activities this fall.”
This initiative has been supported by Chamber members who are sponsoring this community event in addition to key sponsors: New York Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, Pete’s Tavern, Bronxville Auto Collision, Inc.
