About This Activity

This is an annual 5K and 10K normally held in Ephrata, PA to raise awareness for colon cancer. 

This year we’ve added a half marathon and we’re going virtual! All participants will receive a long sleeve unisex t-shirt and a medal. 

Money raised from this race benefits the Lucas E. Malmer Memorial Scholarship Fund. 
Lucas was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer at the age of 29. He underwent surgery and many rounds of chemotherapy but lost his battle in January 2013, he was 33. Just before he was diagnosed, Lucas decided to go to technical school to become an electrician. He was not able to complete this goal. So, the scholarship is awarded yearly to a high school senior preparing to attend technical school. A portion of the proceeds is also donated to colon cancer research. 
*Race packets for anyone who registers by February 28th will be mailed mid-late March. Those who register in March will receive their packet in late March or April.*
