9th Annual Ready, Set, GO(LD) 5K Walk/8K Run
(formerly known as 5K Walk/8K Run to Live)
For the last 8 years, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike. Last year's event raised over $70,000 to support our mission. Our goal this year is $80,000!
This is a fun and exciting event that brings the community together to help local families that are battling childhood cancer. It's a remarkable day filled with love and friendship, and we are delighted that you are looking forward to participating...either for the first time or once again.
This year's event will take place on April 7th at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay and features an 8K run, a 5K walk, a raffle with fabulous prizes, music, food, entertainment, and a kidsâ€™ fun run and obstacle course for kids 12 and under.
Join us and help SPREAD THE GOLD for kids with cancer and their families!
