Event description

Description

5k run/walk with all funds going to research for effective treatment options for infectious diseases like the one that took my 24-year-old son Trey's life in October of 2018. All funds being raised for the Milton S Hershey Medical Center. Event is taking place on the grounds of the Hershey Medical Center on Saturday October 12 from 8-12.

Runners and walkers are welcome for this family-themed event. Tee shirts available for the first 150 registrants. Please include your shirt size with your order.

Infectious diseases took the lives of approximately one million Americans this past year alone, and occurances have been on the rise over the past five years. The funding to research hospitals from the federal government is virtually non-existent, and I am asking you to be a part of the solution by helping to fund this needed research.

My goal is to prevent other parents from experiencing the agony of losing one of their own children, like we recently went through, and I'm asking YOU to partner with my family and I, as well as the doctors, nurses, and researchers at the Hershey Medical Center in this life-saving venture!

YOU can make a lasting difference!

Registration begins at 8 a.m., short program at 8:30, and race to begin promptly at 9 a.m. Come early to pickup your race bib and receive pre-race instructions.

For all of you runners out there, this will be a timed event !!!! Medals will be given out to winners of various age classes!!!!

Event is also being sponsored by the Hershey Lions Club.

There will also be a silent auction going on before and during the event to raise funds for the cause. Items include autographed footballs from James Franklin, Joe Paterno, and Dan Marino in cases.
