Now the longest "running" 5K in Lawrence County, this annual event is held at Cascade Park is in memory of our friend Joann Kalajainen who lost her life to cancer in April 2001 and her daughter Sherry who also lost her life to cancer in 2020. We have added a 1 Mile Survior/Memorial walk/run option! We want to encourage ALL survivors too participate and also those who lost a loved one. This is a time of unity.  The event will benefit the American Cancer Society.
