WE HAD A PERFECT DAY FOR THIS YEAR’S HOPE CURES 5K!!!  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE EVENT THIS PAST SUNDAY.  THIS WAS THE 22ND ANNUAL 5K WHICH ALLOWS ALL AGES AND LEVELS TO TAKE ON THE BEAUTIFUL & CHALLENGING COURSE WHICH WINDS THROUGH THE RESORT’S PROPERTY AND ALONG THE LAKE ROAD BY LAKE TEDDYUSKUNG.

THE TRUE SIGNIFIGANCE OF THE DAY IS FOR FAMILY & FRIENDS TO JOIN FORCES IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY TO CREATE HOPE.  IT’S A DAY WE TAKE THE FIGHT TO CANCER!  ALL OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE HC5K GO DIRECTLY TO THE PENN STATE CANCER INSTITUTE LOCATED IN HERSHEY, PA.

IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ALMOST TWO MILLION PEOPLE WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER THIS YEAR IN THE US ALONE…UNACCEPTABLE.  ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, MORE & MORE PEOPLE ARE SURVIVING AND THRIVING.  WE STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO, BUT WITH THE ADVANCES BEING MADE (IMMUNOTHERAPIES, CAR-T CELL TREATMENT & ONCOLOGICAL RADIATION), WE HAVE REAL PROGRESS AND HOPE…

THIS WAS THE FIRST HC5K THAT MY MOM, JOAN KIESENDAHL, WAS NOT WITH US.  MY MOM WAS BY MY SIDE AND MY COUTNERPART FOR ALL THE HOPE CURES EVENTS SINCE THEIR INCEPTION.  SHE WAS A DRIVING FORCE AND PLAYED A HUGE ROLE IN THE SUCCESSES OF OUR MISSION OVER THE YEARS.  SHE ALSO SHOWED US HOW TO BE HUMBLE AND KIND.  HER SPIRIT WAS PRESENT & STRONG AS I RAN THE COURSE SUNDAY.  I KNOW MANY OF YOU RAN IN HONOR OF OR IN MEMORY OF OR AS A SURVIVOR AS WELL…

I WANT TO SINCERELY THANK THE 18 VOLUNTEERS THAT DEDICATED THEIR TIME & EFFORT TO THE EVENT!!  MY GRATITUDE ALSO GOES OUT TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS THAT PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN OUR EVENT’S SUCCESS:

About the BK5K

One of our most popular events is the Hope Cures 5K RUN/WALK!  The 5K start/finish is located at The Inn at Woodloch.  The course winds through Woodloch Resort’s property and along a private lake.  The local community is invited to join in the event!  All ages and levels can participate with awards for each division and something special for all kids 10 & under!   Many run in memory of, or in support of someone who is/was impacted by cancer.  It is a fun/healthy event that has a deeper meaning for many who join us…..

The entry price entitles participants to a gift, water, Gatorade, chip timing system (thanks to Fast Finishes!), prizes and an outdoor luncheon after the 5K.  The outdoor luncheon after the race is a favorite!  Plenty of good healthy food while eating outdoors (except for the cookies!), comparing times with others or just enjoying the outdoors with friends and family!

The HC5K’s proceeds benefit the Penn State Cancer Institute.
