Please join us on Sunday August 18, 2013, at North Park for the Second Annual Laps for Lauryn Event. The race is planned to honor and celebrate our dear friend, Lauryn E. Ossola, and her wish to make others happy.
Lauryns life was cut short in a tragic accident when visiting her alma mater of Villanova University in October 2011. Lauryn, a financial analyst at PNC Bank, had many passions and two of them were running and Make-A-Wish.
To honor her wish to help others, Laps for Lauryn: The Lauryn E. Ossola 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday August 18, 2013 at North Park. The event will be a 3.1 mile run/walk starting at the boathouse in North Park in Allison Park, PA. Lauryn loved to run and give her time and support to charity, and just last fall participated in a 5K at the Boathouse course in support of a charity close to her family.
Last year's event raised $12,000 for Make-A-Wish and we hope to continue to grow this donation. There are several sponsorship opportunities available for the event and net proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish of Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia. Sponsorship information can be found on the website below.
