MECHANICSBURG – The 10th Annual Fearless 5K hosted by Running4Life is set for Saturday August 20 at 10 a.m., Goshen Memorial Park in Mechanicsburg. Running4Life has helped 28 youth, 20 years of age and under, in the past 10 years. Their focus is on those suffering from serious or life-threatening disease, injury or illness.
The race was founded for Ellie Herdman who suffered from osteosarcoma. She has been cancer free and going strong for some 8 years and has a little girl of her own.
This year’s race is in honor of 18-year-old Mykaleigh Mullins, from London who suffers from a very rare condition: functional neurological disorder. This condition has turned her whole world upside down along with her family’s. Running4Life hopes to aid in Mykaleigh’s medical bills, scheduled surgeries, her required personal aid for college, and to give her hope of a healthy tomorrow.
