The 8th Annual “Piggy Trot”

May 21 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope, Inc. will host the 8th Annual “Piggy Trot” on Sunday, May 21st, 2017 in Osterville, Massachusetts, to raise funds for melanoma awareness and the dangerous effects of overexposure to sunlight and tanning. The event will honor Glenna Kohl, a lifelong resident of Marston’s Mills, who sadly lost her battle with melanoma, the fastest growing cancer in the US and the second leading cause of death in women ages 25-28. The 5K (3.7 mile) race will begin at 10:00 am at Dowses Beach in Osterville, where Glenna served the Town of Barnstable as a lifeguard and swim instructor for five years. A “Kid’s Fun Run” for 10 and under will begin at 9:30 am. Funds raised from the “Piggy Trot” will be allocated directly to purchasing and installing shade canopies for Cape Cod beaches, providing sunscreen dispensers on all beaches, as well as providing support for local sun-safety awareness campaigns. The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope anticipates 450 participants in this year’s event. We encourage you to arrive early and car-pool, as parking is limited and a shuttle will be available only until 9:15 am. On-line registration is available through April 20th for $30.00; mail in registration is available through May 9th for $30.00; day-of-event registration will be $35.00 cash or check only. Memorial “Piggy Trot” t-shirts are guaranteed to the first 200 registrants only. Cash awards, raffles, t-shirt/hat sales, refreshments and entertainment will immediately follow the race.
