The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope is very excited to share some new initiatives and events with you in 2016! Scroll down to learn more.
Shade the Cape Initiative
The Cape Cod Healthcare Community Benefits Program has donated $5,400 to the Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope to support our Shade the Cape initiative. With these Community Benefits Program funds, we are able to install an additional 30 sunscreen dispensers throughout all fifteen towns on Cape Cod! Their support underscores the vulnerability of Barnstable County’s residents and visitors to melanoma and our mission to increase awareness of our community to the importance of early detection and prevention of melanoma.

“What’s up with the Piggy theme?”
That question has been asked many times since our very first Piggy Trot in 2010. We’ve embraced the uniqueness of the Piggy Trot’s name not only to set our road race apart from others on Cape Cod but to also pay homage to our number one inspiration, Glenna.
Glenna was dubbed “Piggy” almost a decade prior to the first Piggy Trot while she attended Salve Regina University. During ice hockey games, Glenna would cheer on her friends wearing a pink piggy hat and snorting happily when she laughed. From then on, the nickname grew into an identity. Now, after six successful Piggy Trots, we are excited to announce a new fall event – the Piggy Roast!
