11th Annual Ready, Set, GO(LD) 5K Walk, 8K Run, and Kids' Fun Run

To benefit The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley

Welcome to the 11th Annual Walk / Run to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay.  For the last TEN years, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike. Last year's event raised almost $70,000 to support our mission. 

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 18th, 2020, 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 kids’ fun run and obstacle course for kids 12 and under.

Embrace the pediatric cancer journey with PCFLV and our families!

This year we have three team categories!

Corporate teams are for businesses and corporations that wish to support our mission by forming a team of employees.

School teams are for schools of any level (high schools, colleges, school districts, etc.) that wish to support our mission by forming a team of employees and/or students.

Family/Friends teams are for people who wish to support a mission by forming a team of members of their family or friends.

PCFLV's ability to help local pediatric cancer families during the most traumatic time of their lives is a result of our fundraising efforts. Please help us in this mission by fundraising as an individual or for your team. We encourage school teams, corporate teams, and family teams! Prizes will be awarded for:

The Foundation

Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley Mission Statement

We embrace the pediatric cancer journey alongside children and their families, moving forward as a community with love, hope, and smiles.  We will ...
                Support at diagnosis
                Encourage during treatment
                Empower in survivorship
                Comfort throughout bereavement

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley is a local 501c(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to helping children and families affected by pediatric cancer by providing free and unique programming and support during treatment, survivorship, and bereavement. We are focused on creating a loving and supportive cancer community for families whose lives have been forever changed by hearing the words, "Your child has cancer." We host events and activities to create free-of-charge opportunities for families to have fun and to find nurturing support within the pediatric cancer community. We have regular, ongoing programming like our Kids Konnect program and monthly Moms’ /Dads'/Parents' Nights Out, as well as much-loved annual events like Camp Smile. PCFLV makes monthly visits to the inpatient pediatric floor and the outpatient pediatric oncology clinic at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital through our Chemo Circus and Caregiver Coffee programs, armed with an array of arts and crafts, gifts, entertainment, and food to distract children during their treatment and to create happiness and smiles. We have a bill-paying fund for families treated at LVRCH. And we are also always available to make specially-requested and personalized visits to children during inpatient stays, as well as home visits. We provide individual and specialized assistance based on the needs of our families as well, often in the form of grocery and gas gift cards to help defray the often-unrecognized costs of dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. We provide housecleaning services for newly diagnosed families, a college scholarship fund for high school graduates, and much more! Our fundraising events support this mission.
