In Honor of William F. Foran

Race Details

The 7th Annual Colon Cancer Prevention 5K Run and Funk Walk was held at City Island, Harrisburg, PA, on  Saturday, June 1, 2013.

There will not be a race during 2014.

These races were held to raise funds for colorectal cancer prevention, testing, and counseling at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.  Over $50,000 was raised over five years for the colon cancer genetics program.

The 2013 overall winners were Matt Gillette in 16:02. Mary Dell captured top honors for the women in 17:42.

Proceeds from this event benefited the Penn State Colon Cancer Genetics Program (under the direction of Maria H. Baker, Ph.D.) and to purchase resource books for newly diagnosed colorectal cancer patients.
