This event will feature a 5k Run, 10k Run and 3k Walk. All ages, levels and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to join as we run and walk the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority Trail in order to raise money for valuable research that will help the future children affected by this indiscriminant disease.
