2020 Fearless 5K - Going Virtual!

Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 8th annual Fearless 5K will take place virtually this August! Normally held as an in-person race at Goshen Memorial Park in Mechanicsburg, Ohio, this year's move to a virtual event will allow participants to run anywhere.  This race is hosted by Running4Life, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  This organization’s mission is to help children and their families who are facing life-threatening illnesses. 

The 8th Annual Fearless 5K will be an independent event by each participant. Running4Life hopes that as you run/walk your race you remember the three youths that have been an inspiration to all of us, but who tragically lost their battle with their disease; Jillian Ripley, Jack Sherrick and Kaleb Hochstedler. We were blessed to have these youths in our community and they shall be forever remembered as their names will be engraved on the Memorial Stone at Goshen Park where the Fearless 5K is annually held. A Memorial Walk will be held in their honor in October of 2020. Details about the event will be available at www.facebook.com/runfearless4life/. Although 2020 has been a struggle for all of us, Calie McDaniel has been a warrior! She has managed to not only keep COVID-19 at bay but also kicked cancer to the curb doing her last round of chemo on June 8th, 2020! Please join “Calie and her Crew” in the Virtual, 8th Annual Fearless 5K! Your donation to this event will help Running4Life continue to provide much needed funds for youth 20 and under who suffer from serious or life threatening, illness, disease or injury.

We are encouraging people to participate in this year's virtual race between the dates of August 8, 2020, and August 16, 2020. Participants have the ability to complete the 5K or 1-mile walk/run events. As mentioned previously, this can be done anywhere that you would like during that timeframe.

Running4Life thanks you for your continued support!
