"The main goal of this is to increase awareness of Stride ... and then the other piece is engaging kids with the special needs kids," he said.
About 200 showed up for last year's run, and registration is on pace to at least match that number.
Stride also does work with the Wounded Warriors Project, which provides a support network and resources for injured soldiers.
The Strides 4 Stride 5K Race/2.5K Community Walk and Wheelchair Roll will step off at 9 a.m. from the Corning Preserve at Albany's riverfront (the walk starts at 10 a.m.). Registration will be open until the morning before race day at stride.org, and day of race registration will also be available. Registration is $25 for adults and $20 for youths 17 and under. Registration opens on Saturday at 8 a.m.""
