Annual Run Benefits American Cancer Society

Cancer donation

The 25th Annual Hook O’Malley 5K Run/Walk was held in memory of the late Paul “Hook” O’Malley, the late boxing coach, who succumbed to cancer on Sept. 25, 1992.  He believed in the spiritual, emotional, and physical health of the youth in his community.

A check made out for $2,100 was presented to the American Cancer Society on behalf of the O’Malley Family.
