Middletown resident Luca Iacono was born in October 2008 but sadly passed away in November 2019 at age 11. When he was in third grade at Harmony Elementary School, he was diagnosed with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that begins in the soft tissue structures of the body.
To honor his memory, his family and friends are planning the first Love for Luca 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run to celebrate his life. All of the proceeds from this race will be given to a local non-profit organization, Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer, whose purpose is to assist with fulfilling pediatric cancer treatment research grants while also providing financial emotional and financial aid to children and families who are undergoing cancer treatment.
The top three individual fundraisers will receive special prizes on race day!
Admission for the 5K is $40. Participating in the Kids Fun is $15.
