Strides for Lives 5K Run/Walk

South Williamsport Community Park
Join Integrity Racing for their first annual Strides for Lives 5K this summer! Integrity Racing hosts multiple events throughout the year and decided to introduce this new 5K to help benefit a member of their immediate family, Elijah, born in the summer of 2017. This race is being held to specifically help the Follmer family, of Montgomery, PA, with their baby’s medical expenses. The Follmer’s have 3 children, one of which was diagnosed with Perlman Syndrome at 3 months of age. It’s a very rare syndrome that puts him at risk for Wilms’ Tumor, a type of childhood cancer that starts in the kidneys. Elijah had a Wilms’ Tumor removed in June 2018 and has finished his 19-week chemotherapy treatment. In June 2019, he is again undergoing treatments. As the Follmer family moves forward with Elijah’s progress, we recommend donating to his cause using the “Support Elijah” button above. We also would love to have you show your support by means of participating in this first annual 5K!
