About This Activity

This race has something for everyone.  The 5k is an out and back and country roads with 1 moderate hill.  The 10k is a loop on country roads with multiple rolling hills.  This event supports the Penns Valley Hope Fund.

The HOPE Fund is a Christian based, non-denominational, non-profit organization dedicated to helping other people everyday.

1. The purpose of the HOPE fund is to financially assist residents of the Penns Valley Area School District with a medical crisis or a personal disaster

2. The HOPE Fund started in response to the caring and generous support of people in the valley

3. Tragedies unfortunately happen everyday. The HOPE Fund wants to have contingency funds available so we can act swiftly when these situations arise.

We are a 100% volunteer run 501c3 Corporation and ALL of the money that we raise STAYS in Penns Valley to help those in need.  It is the belief of THE HOPE FUND that people are likely to recover faster when not faced with financial burden.  We have assisted stroke victims, cancer patients, heart attack victims, accident victims and those displaced by house fires.  In sum, we have distributed over $250,000 since August, 2008 to our Penns Valley neighbors in need.  Some more specific examples of residents we have helped are noted below

Event details and schedule

5k and 10k starting at 9 am.  Registration starts at 8 am.  Signs will direct participants where to park.  A course map will be available at registration.
