Thousands Participate in Record-setting St. Luke’s Via Marathon
The St. Luke’s Via Marathon, drawing thousands of athletes and family members from throughout the country, is the Lehigh Valley’s signature running event and Via’s largest annual fundraiser.
The marathon began at 7:10 am Sunday, September 8, starting in Allentown and finishing in Easton.
“St. Luke’s was honored to be chosen by Via of the Lehigh Valley to be the title sponsor of this signature running event,” said Bill Moyer, President of St. Luke’s West Region and the Allentown Campus. “We see this as an incredible opportunity to serve our community in more than one way. By supporting the marathon, we not only promote health and fitness but also benefit Via’s wonderful work on behalf of children and adults with disabilities.
The marathon is the 6th best Boston qualifier in the United States and one of the fastest races in the country.
