Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

Ready, Set, GOLD 8K Run/5K Walk/Kids Fun Run

Welcome to the 11th Annual Walk / Run to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay. For the last TEN years, this event has been a Lehigh Valley favorite of runners and walkers alike. Last year's event raised almost $70,000 to support our mission. This is a fun and exciting event that brings the community together to help local families that are battling childhood cancer. It’s a remarkable day filled with love and friendship, and we are delighted that you are looking forward to participating…either for the first time or once again. This year’s event will take place on April 18th, 2020, at the Ironton Rail Trail in Coplay and features an 8K run, a 5K walk, a raffle with fabulous prizes, music, food, entertainment, and a kids’ fun run and obstacle course for kids 12 and under. Embrace the pediatric cancer journey with PCFLV and our families! This year we have three team categories! Corporate teams are for businesses and corporations that wish to support our mission by forming a team of employees. School teams are for schools of any level (high schools, colleges, school districts, etc.) that wish to support our mission by forming a team of employees and/or students. Family/Friends teams are for people who wish to support a mission by forming a team of members of their family or friends. PCFLV's ability to help local pediatric cancer families during the most traumatic time of their lives is a result of our fundraising efforts. Please help us in this mission by fundraising as an individual or for your team. We encourage school teams, corporate teams, and family teams!
