The eighth annual Lori Johnson Fun Run and 5K is set for Saturday, August 18 at Greystone Golf and Country Club (GGCC).
The event is held in memory of Lori Johnson, a once healthy woman who was unaware of the signs and symptoms associated with ovarian cancer. This led to her stage four diagnosis. All proceeds from the event benefit the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation’s cancer research.
Pre-registered participants can pick up packets in the foyer of Founder’s Clubhouse on August 16 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. or at GGCC Aquatic Complex on August 18 from 7 to 7:30 a.m. Late registration can be completed on Race Day on August 18 from 7-7:30 a.m.
The 5K will begin at 8 a.m. and is $30. The one-mile Family Fun Run will begin at 9 a.m. and is $17.
Overall winners receive cash and prizes, and winners of each age group will also receive prizes. Children participating in the Fun Run will receive a medallion.
