LOCK HAVEN — Central Mountain High School student Jocelyn Wallace, and David Kramer, a student at Jersey Shore High School, are organizing a “5K Run for Residents” event as their senior projects to benefit Susque-View Home.

Susann Triponey, director of rehabilitation at Susque-View, is their mentor and will be providing the students aid in preparation of the run. All proceeds will go to Susque-View Home.

The students and Triponey attended Thursday’s Clinton County Commissioners meeting to announce the Saturday, Oct. 6 event to raise funds for the county-owned nursing home.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the run begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6.

The run will begin at Susque-View, follow Cree Drive, Irwin Street and Glenn Road, and go onto the Lock Haven University Nature Trail before looping back around to finish at Susque-View entrance.

“The trail will be a moderate level challenge.” Triponey said.

The cost for early registration is $15 for students and $20 for adults before the registration deadline of Sept. 18. From there, up until race day, the cost will go up to $20 for students and $25 for adults.

All participants will receive a t-shirt, as supplies last.

Anyone and everyone in the community is welcome to come out and get involved.

“Even if you don’t run, or feel comfortable doing that, we will be selling shirts.” Triponey said.

Pizza Mia, a local business, will be serving breakfast pizza after the event.

To register, visit Susque-View Home, email, or call Susann at 570-893-5971.
