Patti J Nelson 5K

The Patti J Nelson Foundation is holding another 5K race on April 22, 2017 at 10:00 AM

In October 2015, the Evans City Community lost a great philanthropist when Patti Nelson lost her courageous battle with Cancer. Patti was a life-long Evans City resident and when she wasn’t walking her dogs on the Old Rt. 68 loop, she was giving back. She was a “professional volunteer” – who spent her time giving to many organizations: Evans City Library, EDCO Park, Carnegie Museum, The Caring Quilts of St. Kilian, The Quilters of St. Johns, the Evans City Community Food Cupboard, Highmark Caring Place, and was a founding partner of the Nelson Charitable Foundation.
