Please Join us for the 14th annual Jack Roth Rock “N” Run/Walk

June 9th 2019 @ 9:00 AM, Bexley, OH

Welcome to the 14th annual Jack Roth 5K Rock'N'Run/Walk! We are pleased to announce this year's honorary race chair is co-anchor of NBC4 Today, Matt Barnes. A former sports anchor and reporter, his favorite part about working in television is being able to tell people's stories. Whether it is talking to someone making a difference in their community, a young person fighting against a terminal disease, or an athlete striving for a championship, everyone has a unique story to tell.

2018 was another fantastic record year in fundraising, bringing in over $110,000 for the Jack Roth Fund, bringing our 13 year total to more than $1,350,000. The Jack Roth Fund was created to promote the vital research and treatment necessary to combat lung cancer, through The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC –James) and the Jack Roth Camp Netaim-Ramah Noam, a program in Israel for children with special needs. The race will take runners and walkers through central Bexley's beautiful neighborhoods, and include a fun-filled morning with:

  • Food, music, awards and prizes!
  • The Dave Gill Chevrolet complimentary food, fun and fitness marketplace featuring local food, health and wellness vendors.
  • Kids activities: face painting, balloon making, glitter tattoos, braid bar & bouncy house.
  • Max's Track Dash for Kids returns for 2019!
