PK 5K Run

The PK 5K Run will be held at Lakeside Administration Office, 236 Walnut Ave., Lakeside on October 15. Cost is $20 or $25 day of the race. Registration is from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and the race begins at 9:30 a.m. Register by October 9 for a free T-shirt.

This race is a benefit fundraiser for Stein Hospice and to honor Patricia King Munn who passed away on September 30, 2013. A native of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Pat was a resident and successful business owner in Lakeside for many years.

Before becoming a recipient of the kindness and compassion of the Stein Hospice “Angels,” Pat admired this amazing organization which supports patients and families as they pass through one of life’s most difficult journeys. Our family is forever grateful for the care our mother received from the staff of Stein Hospice.

We are very happy to work with Stein Hospice, and to honor our mother’s memory, by promoting the “PK 5K Run.” It is our hope that this run and fundraiser will help Stein continue with its mission and good work.
