Join us for the 11th Annual Ready, Set, GO(LD) 5K Walk and 8K Run (Formerly known as 5K Walk/8K Run to Live) to benefit The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley. For the last 10yrs, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike. Last year the event raised over $70,000 to support our mission. Our goal this year is $80,000!
