2016 BK5K Re-Cap

The weather did not dampen our spirits!  We tuned out the weatherman yesterday and focused on the cause – helping those impacted by cancer!  Thank you to everyone who participated in the Hope Cures 5K 2016!

We had just under 200 runners & walkers who dodged the puddles (some opted to jump in them…) and weathered a downpour along the way.  It was great to see all the familiar faces and welcome our new friends to the event.

This year the 5K benefitted the Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute.  The PSHCI is a leading cancer research and patient care facility located in Hershey, PA.  I was personally diagnosed and received care from this amazing facility.  I can assure you that our contributions will help further fund the FIGHT!

This was the 17th 5K that we have hosted & it was another memorable day thanks to all your support and participation!  Please keep checking the website for next year’s date!  We will continue to do all that we can to make a difference in the battle against cancer.

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 Hershey Medical Center

We hope you enjoyed this year’s event!  Take a look back at our 2016 event and set your goals.  Can you beat your time in 2017?

Thank you to all our volunteers and the Woodloch Team for making our HC5K a wonderful event!

The 2017 BK5K will be held Sunday June 4, 2017!
