Join us for the First Annual Memorial 5K Charity Event honoring Louann Burchfield and Kathy Hannan Hale benefiting cancer patient’s and their families through the sunlight fund created by their families on August 19th, 2023 and annually thereafter on the third Saturday in August. All proceeds will benefit those battling cancer and their families facing financial strains to help with co-pays, groceries, gas, travel expenses, lodging, and more.
The race will begin at Tri B’s Coffee shop located at 241 North 4th street proceeding to river avenue and old route 7 on a flat scenic route along the Ohio River and retuning to Tri B’s coffee shop where lotus drinks will be made special for this event with proceeds benefiting the Sunlight Fund. Join us for fun for the whole family. This event will include a timed 5 k run or walk and 1k kids fun run. A remembrance area will be featured after crossing the finish line to honor any loved one that is no longer with us due to any cause. There will be an area to sign their name and option to light a candle or release a balloon in their honor. Release colors associated with you. This can also be to celebrate survivors. Get decked out in as many colors as u like, the wilder the better or whichever is specific to your heart. Each type cancer has a special color to honor those it has affected.

Event registration will be released with pricing and further details on our page.
