3rd Annual 5K and Fun Run/Walk

In October of 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.
In her memory, we are holding the third annual 5K and Fun Run on April 21st on that same loop you could see her on every morning at 7 a.m. to benefit the Patti J. Nelson Foundation.

Please join us in making this event a success and carry on the legacy of the tremendous human being who is inspiring it. To register please go to pattijnelsonfoundation.com.
