7th Annual 5K Walk/8K Run to LIVE

To benefit The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley
Welcome to the 7th Annual Walk / Run to Live to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay.
For the last 6 years, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike.

This is a fun and exciting event that brings the community together to help local families that are battling childhood cancer. It’s a remarkable day filled with love and friendship, and we are delighted that you are looking forward to participating…either for the first time or once again.

This year’s event will take place on April 2nd at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay and features an 8K run, a 5K walk, a raffle with fabulous prizes, music, food, entertainment, and a kids’ fun run and obstacle course for kids 12 and under.
