Please join us for the “We Love You Still”—Jack Roth Farewell 5k Rock’N'Run/Walk
June 12th, 2022 @ 9:00 AM, Bexley, OH
Welcome to the 16th and final Jack Roth 5K Rock'N'Run/Walk! We have had 14 years of incredible 5k’s, marketplaces, track dashes, music, and more. While we are sad to say goodbye, we are very grateful for so many years of unwavering support. We look to our final year with one goal in mind, to honor Jack by making this our biggest and best year yet! Although Janice will only be with us in spirit, her passion for this event is irreplaceable and it is only fitting that she is honored posthumously as our 2022 Honorary Race Chair. We also look forward to welcoming back many of our former Honorary Race Chairs as well to help us kick off the morning with a bang!
The 5k run/walk will take participants through the beautiful neighborhood of Central Bexley with the start and finish at Cassingham Elementary. All of our favorite elements of race day will be returning along with some special mementos to commemorate our last hurrah! Following the 5k, we will celebrate with live music and dancing; enjoy the ever-popular Food, Fun, & Fitness Marketplace featuring complimentary food, great services, and kids activities; and cheer on all the kids participating in Max’s Track Dash as they run their hearts out in support of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC).
The Jack Roth Fund was created to promote the vital research and treatment necessary to combat lung cancer, through The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC –James) and the Jack Roth Camp Netaim-Ramah Noam, a program in Israel for children with special needs. Even though we were only able to race virtually in 2021, we had excellent community participation and a successful year, bringing our 15 year total to more than $1,580,000 in support of the Jack Roth Fund.
This year's event will be in person, with a virtual component for anyone that can’t join us on race day. All 5K registrants will receive a one-of-a-kind, super soft, commemorative farewell race shirt from HOMAGE and a bag of goodies.
