“Cancer is a diagnosis, not who you are.”

We’re honored to announce that the inaugural Bull Run 5K, in memory of Robert “Bull” Jarosinski, will be held in conjunction with September by the River on Saturday, September 17. A former Freeport High School and Clarion University football player, Bull passed away earlier this year following a courageous battle with cancer. Bull was an avid runner and was inducted into the Armstrong County Sports Hall of Fame. All proceeds from this race will benefit a local individual who has been diagnosed with cancer and their family.

Online registration will be available soon — check the RunSignup page for more details.
