Thomas A. Dern Memorial 4-Mile Run

Get ready for the challenge! What better way to spend a Saturday morning in June than running through New York’s iconic Central Park?

The Thomas A. Dern Memorial 4-Mile Run invites runners of all abilities to participate. It's the perfect opportunity for you to lace up your sneakers, soak up some sun, and show your support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities!

The Top Overall Male and Female Runners will each receive a 4-night, 5-day resort stay for two at Casa De Campo in La Romana, Dominican Republic with $500 in airfare credits from JetBlue Airways.

The Top 3 Finishers (Male and Female) in each age group will receive medals and additional prizes.
Age Groups in 5 year increments (14 & under to 70 and over)

This event is named in honor of our late Chief Operating Officer, Thomas A. Dern. An All-American runner from St. John's University, Tom took great pride in participating in this race each year. Tom was a dedicated employee and proud supporter of YAI and the I/DD community, and his contributions to our organization still live on today.
