2024 Pumpkins in the Park Details!

Each year Lisa's Army holds the Lisa's Army Pumpkins in the Park 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk to raise funds for our signature Comfort Care Packages. The event brings together families and friends to enjoy the Fall weather in for Halloween Fun in memory of Lisa Loonstyn-Golden, who loved Halloween.  This is our 11th annual 5K for Lisa's Army!  

Lisa, was 20 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Lisa saw and experienced the devastating physical and mental toll that cancer inflicts on those suffering from the disease and wanted to help comfort those going through this ordeal. Amidst her own battle with cancer, Lisa began to leave small gifts for those she saw struggling.

Lisa believed that everyone battling cancer needs encouragement and comfort, so, with the help of her family and friends, Lisa’s Army was formed. It is an organization dedicated to comforting those with cancer. The goal of Lisa's Army is to make a difference in the world just like Lisa was able to accomplish in her short time with us. Now, we continue to spread comfort in her name and invite you to join our Army! 

This year our event will take place on October 5, 2024 in Rose Tree County Park.  

Please wear your race shirt or your costume, bring your family to the beautiful park and playground for kids games, pumpkin picking, face painting, and crafts.  Enjoy a fall day with your family in honor of those battling cancer.
