Tracy Kling LaManna, a Downingtown High School and West Chester University graduate, despite never having been a smoker, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer while pregnant with her second child. Tracy fought hard against the disease and throughout it all she always maintained her strength and determination. Sadly, Tracy passed away on Oct. 7, 2013 at the young age of 33. We will never forget her drive, perseverance and willingness to fight! Please help us honor her memory and continue her fight against cancer by joining our 7th annual Running for Kling 5k Race on Friday, May 10th at 7pm in Downtown West Chester, PA.
Immediately following the race (8pm-10pm), the fun continues at Barnab’ys where there will be an all-inclusive Beef and Beer with lots of awesome raffle prizes as well as a 50/50 drawing! When registering for the run or walk, you will have an option towards the end of your registration asking if you’d like to add the Beef and Beer event ticket to your order for an additional cost.
All proceeds from this event go to the University of Penn Lung Cancer Research Center (where Tracy received her exceptional treatment), as well as towards benefiting the Tracy Kling LaManna West Chester University Women’s Basketball Scholarship.
All runners/walkers registered prior to April 15th will receive a commemorative 2019 Running For Kling 5K t-shirt! You MUST register before April 15th in order to guarantee a t-shirt.
DAY-OF REGISTRATION: You are able to register on the day of the event for $30. Unfortunately same-day registrants are not guaranteed a t-shirt. Day-of registration begins at 5:30pm and ends at 6:30pm.
