This first annual John Petrovick Memorial 5k will take place in Baltimore, MD, on Sunday, April 28, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Registration will begin at 8:45am and will end promptly at 9:45 AM.
The run/walk is strictly for charity so there is no prize for first across the finish line. The race will be a shotgun start at 10:00 AM. The race will conclude at Fort McHenry by a lunch, and there will be more events to follow.
From the Eventbrite page:
John Paul Petrovick passed away on April 28, 2012 after fighting a courageous battle with brain cancer.
John graduated from Archbishop Spalding High School, Stetson University, where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, and the University of Baltimore Law School in 2011. John was chosen to serve an internship with the Office of the Public Defender in Baltimore. He also worked for the Maryland State Legislature.
John loved life. He enjoyed hiking, snowboarding, cooking, and loved dogs. He was an avid runner, running in many races and marathons where he was a champion for brain cancer research. John’s motto, Inside All of Us Is Hope, was worn proudly in each race. Most of all, John loved relationships with his family and friends. We have created this race in memory of John’s honor as well as to raise money and awareness for Brain cancer research.
