Third Annual Finish Lyme 5K
Southern Tier Lyme Support is proud to say that the third annual Finish Lyme 5K was a huge success. We want to thank everyone that helped with event organization, and the many individuals who walked and ran in honor of this cause. The Race to Finish Lyme 5K Walk and Run was held on August 26, 2023 at Otsiningo Park, in Binghamton NY. The proceeds will support medical scholarships, pay for medical bills for those afflicted with Lyme and for the continued fight against Lyme. It was a great turn out, and we couldn’t have done it without those who participated, donated, and partook. Thank You!
Take a Bite Out of Lyme!
Southern Tier Lyme Support is proud to participate, once again, in the Roberson Museum and Science Center’s Home for the Holidays exhibit. Our team will be decorating a tree in honor of the holiday and all those who are involved in the battle against Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
“Community involvement is why Home for the Holidays is such a longstanding success. Over 12,000 people attend each year! Home for the Holidays will take place November 16 – January 5.”
If you are among the 12,000, be sure to be on the lookout for the tree of green! We wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you Home for the Holidays!
