Get ready, get set for the 7th annual Christopher’s Run!Logo_Final w-Number(1)The annual 5k run/walk, Chinese auction, and fun community gathering will take place on Saturday, June 7th. Christopher’s Run is always a great morning in Southampton, as The Christopher Lesta Fund rallies the community in celebration and remembrance of “the little man with the big smile,” Christopher Lesta.

Christopher’s Run 5k This Saturday!

Join One Healthy Hamptons this Saturday, June 8th, for the sixth annual Christopher’s Run 5k! Start your morning with a fun run to benefit a fabulous cause, The Christopher Lesta Fund Inc (tax-exempt 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.)


Christopher Lesta was an adorable young boy, well-known by many in the Hamptons community for his sweet, charming nature. He was constantly laughing and smiling and his positivity touched everyone who knew him. Christopher was known as “the little man with the big smile;” his heart was always open and his smile was contagious.

Christopher was born with Hunter Syndrome and lived a short life. Hunter is a rare genetic disorder that primarily affects males. Due to the disease, Christopher’s body was deficient in necessary enzymes responsible for breaking down and recycling units of carbohydrates. These cells build up and interfere with bodily functions, worsening quickly with time. Hunter Syndrome is a deadly disease that causes progressive damage to the body, with no known cure.

Christopher made quite a lasting impression during his short time in our community and beyond, constantly reminding everyone to smile. In 2007, Christopher was five and thriving in kindergarten, after a blood transplant, when he unexpectedly caught an infection that spread to his heart. Sadly, Christopher passed away in early December, 2007. The Christopher Lesta Fund was started in Christopher’s strong memory, in the hopes of helping other children through their transplant process, and aiding researchers to one day find a cure to eradicate this horrible disease.

Taking place in Southampton, the route starts in Agawam Park and takes participants through a beautiful tour of Southampton village. It’s truly an amazing event. This will be my second time running Christopher’s Run (last year, my mom was visiting from Boston and surprised me by joining me in her very first 5k!) This year, I’ve invited more family to participate and One Healthy Hamptons is a proud sponsor! We hope to see you at the starting line!

Christophers Run 5k w MomRegister here or on race day from 8-9am. The run begins at 9:30am, with a kids fun run at 9am. Bring the whole fam!

One Healthy Breakdown: embrace Christopher Lesta’s spirit this Saturday; (and every day!) by smiling big and running for Christopher.

Pink Galore at Katy’s Courage 5k

Just finished the 3rd annual Katy’s Courage 5k. It was wonderful to see SO many people lace up their sneakers and rally for a great cause.  There must have been twice as many people this year as last year, which was A-ok with me as the body heat finally warmed me right up waiting at the starting line!  We started on Water Street (Sag Harbor Village) and headed through town on Main Street, ran around Redwood Road, and looped back to Water Street for the finish.  Although it was freeeezin’ on the bay, there was no denying the abundance of good vibes, camaraderie, and lots and lots of pink!


Katy Stewart passed away from Hepatoblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer, at the end of 2010.  Katy’s spirit lives on and continues to spread and touch hearts throughout Sag Harbor, The Hamptons, and far beyond.  Katy’s Courage has flourished into a bright pink celebration of Katy’s life, inspirational personality, lively spirit, and deep kindness.  Katy’s Courage benefits education, bereavement counseling, and pediatric cancer research.  Funds raised from the run, skate-a-thon, dance-a-thon, and more enable scholarships for students who demonstrate Katy’s best qualities: courage, kindness, and empathy.

The best part of the run is when participants are going in both directions and ALL the many folks walking or taking it easy, strolling with their kiddos or their dogs, cheer on those running and vice versa.  It feels great to start the weekend off with a three-mile run, so thank you to Katy’s family and Katy’s Courage for making this special event possible.  See you all (and more!) next April at the starting line!
