MollyK 5K was founded in 2012 in memory of Mradula "Molly" Kalathia, who passed away from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).  Our event is to promote disease awareness and support research efforts leading to a cure for IPF.  Please visit to learn more about MollyK and how you can help. 

Pulmonary Fibrosis affects up to 200,000 Americans and is a condition in which the lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and scarred and the brain and other organs don’t get the oxygen they need. In some cases, doctors can determine the cause of the fibrosis, but in most cases, there is no known cause. PF can strike anyone, but the disease tends to affect men more than women and usually occurs between the ages of 50 and 70.  An estimated 40,000 people die in the US each year from PF. The median survival rate is just two to three years following diagnosis, and more than two-thirds of patients will die within five years.

Funds raised through MollyK will benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.  Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying effective PF treatments and assisting those living with the disease. Please visit to learn more about PFF.
