About the Kate Shea Foundation
We appreciate your support in helping bring the Bay Head community together to fight Leukemia and grow our next generations understanding of global cultures.
Kate Shea passed away from Leukemia at a young age of 25 years. The Bay Head 5K Memory Run was founded by loving friends and family of Kate Shea in order to give back to the community she called home most summers of her short but fulfilling life. Kate was an inspiration to us all in the way she lived her life in an accepting and open-minded way. The proceeds from the Bay Head 5K will go to The Kate Shea Foundation to support its mission of providing funds to research organization fighting blood cancers and youth education.
The Kate Shea Foundation has raised over $120,000 for Leukemia Research and Education since it began in 2004.
