8th Annual Piggy Trot!

Sunday, May 21st, 2017 • Dowses Beach, Osterville MA

The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope, Inc. will host the 8th Annual “Piggy Trot” to raise funds for melanoma awareness and the dangerous effects of overexposure to sunlight and tanning.

The event will honor Glenna Kohl, a lifelong resident of Marston’s Mills, who sadly lost her battle with melanoma, the fastest growing cancer in the US and the second leading cause of death in women ages 25-28. Approximately 63,000 cases of melanoma are being diagnosed yearly, and is the second most common cancer for women 25-29 years old.

The 3.7 mile race will begin at 10:00 am at Dowses Beach in Osterville, where Glenna served the Town of Barnstable as a lifeguard and swim instructor for five years. A “Kid’s Fun Run” for 10 and under will begin at 9:30 am.

    • Build community shade structures on Cape Cod
    • Protect residents and tourists with donated sun screen dispensers in public spaces
