The Board of Directors for the Dennis P. McHugh Foundation decided not to hold the 5K Run for Fun & Family Fair this year and will be evaluating fundraising options moving forward.  

We would like to thank all of the vendors, sponsors and volunteers who made the race possible over the last ten years and all of those who participated. Collectively, your efforts helped raise enough funds to support the following projects:


 

              

  •    Constructed SUREHANDS® Lift & Care System at the Children of Promise Stable to safely transfer wheelchair bound     
       special needs children to and from horses;                                   

  •        Supported United Hospice of Rockland County;

  •        Facilitated programs run by Tuesday’s Children; and

  •        Helped other Rockland Community members in need. 

These projects have had a direct and positive impact on our community. Dennis would be proud and you should be proud for all your work.   

Please be sure to sign up for emails at info@dennispmchugh.org, so we can let you know when the next event will take place. Once again, we cannot thank all of you enough for your support and participation over the years!

The Dennis P. McHugh Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was formed to honor our beloved fallen firefighter Dennis P. McHugh (Engine 22 Ladder 13), who was among the more than 2,800 brave rescue workers and civilians who perished as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center. The foundation first focused its efforts by pledging $500,000 to the construction of a new home for a local library. Construction on the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library began in Spring of 2004 and was completed and officially opened March 10, 2007.  Throughout the years the Foundation has supported local Rockland County organizations and community members in need and will continue to do so with your help and support.

Photo: Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library The Dennis P. McHugh Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was formed to honor our beloved fallen firefighter Dennis P. McHugh (Engine 22 Ladder 13), who was among the more than 2,800 brave rescue workers and civilians who perished as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center.
The foundation first focused its efforts by pledging $500,000 to the construction of a new home for a local library.
Construction of the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library began in the Spring of 2004 and was completed and officially opened March 10, 2007.
In addition to naming the new building for Dennis McHugh, a memorial was placed within the library to honor all those lost on September 11th. Following the tragic events of that day, communities and people came together to support one another and provide strength to each other and to those who were directly affected.
The foundation hopes that the new library will provide a symbol to that collective spirit and the positive power of community strength to overcome adversity.
The foundation was established by Dennis P. McHugh's family and friends to ensure that his legacy lives on in as dignified a fashion as he lived his life. The foundation chose the library as its project because Dennis was a firm believer in the importance of education and regularly read to his children and took his oldest daughter to the library as part of their routine.
Dennis’ wife Una McHugh hopes that through this project their children will see that "Dennis’ spirit will continue to add happiness and strength to the community where he grew up and started his own family."
The foundation is a recognized nonprofit public charity that has received its 501(c)(3) status, consequently all donations are tax deductible. Anyone interested in viewing any of the supporting documentation regarding the foundation should feel free to contact us, we will gladly oblige.

More events are being planned to help fund other community projects so be sure to log on occasionally or visit us on Face Book.
