Â 03/07/13 Itâ€™s time for the 2nd Annual St. Paddyâ€™s Day Dash For Hope !Â This yearâ€™s 5K run/walk is being held in honor of Hope Banghart, a PHS sophomore, who was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2012. Hope is now on her way to recovery due in large part to her sister, Kristine who was a match for a bone marrow transplant. Hope was lucky, but not many others are.
Â The National Marrow Donor Program, BE THE MATCH will be at the St. Paddyâ€™s Day Dash for Hope, giving out free cheek swabs. That is all that it takes for you to be put in a database. Also in attendance, will be Preventative Medicine giving out free massages, Bruce Ruffing’s BBQ with his famous pulled pork sandwiches for sale, and a scrumptious bake sale with homemade goodies for sale.
Â The St. Paddy’s Day Dash will be at the Plymouth High School Football Field on Saturday March 16, 2013.Â Â Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the 5K walk/run starts at 10 a.m. Entry fee includes a t-shirt and is $20 for adults and $15 for students. Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and run for Hope!
