About This Activity

Let's face it...we all know someone who has had to battle cancer. That's especially true for lymphoma, a type of blood cancer that half a million people are battling right now. Don't forget about the approximately 220 people on average that are newly diagnosed with some type of lymphoma every day.

The time to end lymphoma is now, and that's where the Movie Lovers 5K comes in.

Formerly known as the Round it Up 5K for Lymphoma Research, this wonderful movie-themed 5K and 1 mile fun run will take place on March 19, 2016 in Jeffersontown, KY at Skyview Park.

Enjoy a fun run or leisurely stroll through the trails of Skyview Park as you help out the Round it Up for Lymphoma program, which benefits research to find a cure for lymphoma.

The top three finishers in each age group during the 5K will receive awards.

The 1 mile fun run is untimed and is simply for fitness and fun.

During the race, watch for signs that display quotes or facts from a movie. Knowing the movie they are from may help you earn a great prize from Family Video and its sponsors.

Early registration for the 5K is $20 per person until March 5. Late registration, including day of race, is $25 per person. The 1 mile fun registration is $10 per person.

All early registrations for the Movie Lovers 5K will receive a goody bag compliments of Family Video and its sponsors. Goody bags and packets can be picked up at Family Video, 3801 Ruckriegel Parkway in Jeffersontown, on March 17 and 18 between 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

All those registered will also be automatically entered into a drawing for door prizes.

Come on out and support a great cause!
