Run to Remember returns to Lake Carey in March 2023

The annual 5k run and walk honoring the memory of Kara Cook is slated for Saturday, March 25 at the Lake Carey Volunteer Fire Company.

In September 2017, at just 11 years old, Kara passed away after a third courageous battle with cancer. With the blessing of Kara’s family, proceeds from the annual race will benefit pediatric programs at Allied Services - where Kara was both a patient and ambassador. Family friend Adam Edwards of Tunkhannock organizes the event.

“Kara was a beautiful, caring, and kind young lady, and the strongest kid I’ve known. This race and this day have become an opportunity to focus on happy memories of Kara and by supporting the non-profit organization, give other children and families hope as they recover from an injury, or illness, or mark new milestones in their therapy journey” says Adam Edwards.

The 2023 Run to Remember will take place on Saturday, March 25th at Lake Carey. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. with registration at the Lake Carey Volunteer Fire Company on Siren Road. The race will start at 10:00 a.m. and will be followed by an awards presentation at 11:00 a.m. The run and walk follow a mostly flat course around Lake Carey, and all ages are welcome to participate. The first 100 entrants will receive a commemorative race t-shirt.

Registration is $20 with all proceeds benefitting children with disabilities served by Allied Services.
