Registration opens for Pennsylvania race

Posted on Tue Aug 14, 2018 9:08am

The 2nd Annual John Cunningham Memorial Miles for Meso 5K Run/Walk, presented by Simmons Hanly Conroy and coordinated by Metro Tri Club, returns this year on Sept. 30, 2018 at Peace Valley Park in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

This race honors John Cunningham, a loving husband, father, multisport athlete and former Director of Laboratory Research at Merck and Co., Inc. In March 2015, John was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. He passed away one year later. John’s loving wife Joan started the race to keep John’s memory alive and to support mesothelioma research at Penn Medicine – the same place John received treatment.

Donations and registration costs will benefit Penn Medicine’s Mesothelioma Translational Center of Excellence (TCE). If you cannot attend the race but would still like to make a contribution, please donate here .

Registration fees are $25 through August 31 and will increase to $30 through September 28. Participants under the age of 12 will not have to pay a registration fee. To register, please click here . Race day registration will not be available.

Participants can pick up their packets starting at 9 a.m. on race day. The race will begin at 10 a.m. There will also be a post-race picnic at 11 a.m.

Every registered participant will receive a long-sleeve moisture-wicking T-shirt. Sizes are only guaranteed for those registered by August 31. Water and refreshments will also be provided.

For more information, visit the John Cunningham Memorial Miles for Meso 5K Run/Walk page here. For additional updates on this race and other Miles for Meso races, “like” the Miles for Meso fan page on Facebook here.
