Running for Rachel: 5k Run in Harrisburg

Running For Rachel began in an effort to support Harrisburg resident Rachel Lynn Guss as she battled duodenal cancer. Since her passing in November 2011, her family and friends continue on a mission to raise awareness and funds for gastrointestinal cancer research.

On Sunday, April 24, runners and walkers are invited to join on City Island, Harrisburg to continue Rachel’s fight against cancer and honor her memory at the fifth annual Running for Rachel 5K Run/Walk.
