2014 5K announcement

We were so lucky to have such great community support last year, as evidenced by the amazing turnout we had at the Halloween Hustle.  Emilia wasn't able to be at the event last year since she was still recovering from surgery but this year she will be blowing the starting horn!!  Though Emilia is in remission she still wanted to have this race but her mission is to help another local family who is battling pediatric cancer. Sean Bartolucci is a 7th grader at Camp Hill Middle School  and we met him for the first time a few weeks ago.  The Bartolucci family has become very familiar with CHOP and Hershey, just like we did, and they can use some help to get through the next step of treatment, a stem-cell transplant.
All the proceeds of our race will benefit Sean and his family.  Support like this is what got us through the dark days and kept practical things going like bills, food and gas for the long trips back and forth from home to hospital.
Please join us for another great fall morning to help Sean and his family.  Mark your calendars, November 8 at 10:30 am.
