Harnessing Hope 5k Run / Walk
Harnessing Hope 5k Run / Walk: race description
The Harnessing Hope 5K Run/Walk celebrates its third year in 2016, and is organized in loving memory of Thomas A. Paternostro &, Kathleen Paternostro Morgan. The 2014 race was cancelled following the untimely passing of our father, Thomas A., to cancer in September 2014.

• Top Male Finisher (Run)
• Top Female Finisher (Run)
• Top Finisher (Walk)
• Top Finisher 13 &, Under (Male &, Female)
• Top Finisher 14 –, 25 (Male &, Female)
• Top Finisher 26 –, 40 (Male &, Female)

Integrity Sports will provide timing and logistical race support. Further registration details, the course map, and other race logistics are available on our website: http://paternostrofamilyfoundation.org.
Before and after the race, we invite participants to stop by our “Everything Will Be Okay” Tribute Wall. Sadly, we understand that so many people in our community have been touched by cancer in some way. It is in this spirit that we will offer our runners/walkers a chance to recognize all of those fighters, survivors, caregivers, or loved ones in Heaven that we will run for on race day! They are our inspiration to keep going.
Throughout her cancer journey, Kass always reminded us that no matter what, “everything will be okay”. She was always upbeat and positive! Even as she faced her final days, she would say, “I’m still fighting.” This tribute wall will be dedicated in her memory. Proceeds from this event support the Paternostro Family Foundation.
