Charity Run Raises Money For Charity Runs

leave a comment »

(LANCASTER) – Dozens of people took to the streets here today to run for a good cause: other people who run for a good cause.
The First Annual Lancaster Charity Run Walk/Run is designed to raise money for individuals who take part in walking or running events for various charities.
“I’m out here in memory of my dad,” said Brent Houlihan of Gap. “He was taking part in an American Cancer Society Run for the Cure event in 2005, when he took a wrong turn and was hit by a train.” Houlihan also recently participated in a walking event in York to raise money for families of people who are killed by trains in the course of walking or running for charity.
Others said they wanted to send a message of support to individuals who use walking and running events to send messages of support.
Such was the case for Shelly Harburger of Lititz. “My mom wants to take part in a walk for Multiple Sclerosis, but participants have to raise $300,” she said. “I’m running today to raise that money so she can afford to sign up for the walk.”
