Join us for the 23rd annual Women’s 5K Classic
October 17, 2015



We are an all-volunteer, grassroots organization that founded the Women’s 5K Classic back in 1993. Our mission is two-fold: To promote fitness among women; To support women with breast and female cancers and their families and to contribute funding for related programs and research in the Lehigh Valley.  Learn more.


When you run or walk our event you are contributing to the success of our overall cause. Your entry fees have helped raise over $2.5 million in the past 23 years, funds from which have been distributed to various organizations throughout the local region.
Sign up to run or walk our event.


Even if you can’t make it to our event, you can still be an important part of our success. Your support is vital to our goal of reducing the impact of women’s cancers and educating the local community. There are several ways you can help, from tribute markers, pledges, raffle donations, and much more. Learn more.
