Run Like Hale is back!

HALE – With the weather warming up and summer just around the corner, it’s time to prepare for “Run Like Hale,” the 10k fun run to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on July 30. 

Wayne Wheatley created the event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The organization is near and dear to the new organizers of the event as well, because their mother passed from Leukemia in 2010.

New race directors are Jenifer Pfaff, Tina Gamino and Janeen Clark.

“With Wayne’s relocation out of state, he asked us to take over as host of this community event. We were more than happy to do so as our friends and family loved participating in this event,” Pfaff said. “The community is great, and it is common to see many people around the lake cheering the runners on and occasionally giving them a spritz of the water sprinklers on the hotter years.”

Goals for Run Like Hale are:

  • Raise the maximum amount of donations for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (lls.org) to help their mission in fighting and finding a cure. 
  • Provide a fun social event for the community, family, and friends in the Hale community.

With that said, to hit the goal of donating as much as possible to LLS, we will be reducing costs which change the race back to a “fun” run with, many of the same features – but without the extraneous costs of timers, medals and online registration.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Sign up locations for the fun run will be announced on our Face Book page at Run Like Hale 10K.
  • The Starting location and Finish line are located on Kokosing Rd. with parking in the boat launch/public beach area.
  • A Run Like Hale T-shirt showing your support of this great community event will be given the day of the race. 
  • People who can’t participate but want to donate receive a 0.0 Run Like Hale T-shirt with their donation.
