Welcome to the 13th annual Jack Roth 5K Rock'N'Run/Walk! We are pleased to announce this year's honorary race chair is Dr. David Carbone, Professor of Internal Medicine, Director of the James Thoracic Oncology Center at the OSUMC and the Barbara J. Bonner Chair in Lung Research. He has primarily focused on creating cutting-edge treatments for patients with lung cancer and the funds earned by the Jack Roth Fund directly benefit Dr. Carbone’s research at the OSUCCC – James

2017 was another fantastic record year in fundraising, bringing in over $125,000 for the Jack Roth Fund, bringing our 12 year total to more than $1,240,000. The Jack Roth Fund was created to promote the vital research and treatment necessary to combat lung cancer, through the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, and to support Jack Roth Camp Netaim, a program in Israel for children with special needs. The race will take runners and walkers through central Bexley's beautiful neighborhoods, and include a fun-filled morning with:

  • Food, music, awards, and prizes!
  • The Dave Gill Chevrolet complimentary food, fun and fitness marketplace featuring local food, health and wellness vendors.
  • Kids activities: face painting, balloon making, glitter tattoos, braid bar & bouncy house.
  • Max’s Track Dash for Kids returns for 2018!
