FALCON 5K Walk/Run

San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Falcon 5K is a family friendly event, with all profits being donated to The Lung Cancer Initiative of NC. The start/finish line will be at the JO Humphries Falcon Town Park located on Brooks Street in Falcon, NC. All pre-registrants are guaranteed an event T-shirt. There will be a limited quantity of shirts available for those who register on event day.
The idea for this event started with 2 women, Becky & Beth, who had connections unknown to them when they met. They met when their daughters became friends in Kindergarten. Becky & Beth began to talk at the kid's events and found out that both had a parent suffering from lung cancer. Both women wanted to do something to help with research & awareness for lung cancer, but didn't know exactly what at the time. Becky decided to participate in a Lung Cancer Initiative of NC 5K in Charlotte, NC & invited Beth to join. It was a very emotional experience for both women. Becky had an idea to put on a 5K in their home area & do something to help.
They hope to make this an annual event & spread awareness for lung cancer. This event will be timed by East Carolina Road Racing.
