The JK5k and Birthday Fun Walk/Run will be held on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at a new location, New Hanover Methodist UMC – North Campus in Gilbertsville. Registration opens June 2021.
This fundraiser directly benefits students of Boyertown Area Senior High who plan to further their education. Since the inaugural race, 19 Boyertown graduates have been recipients of the Jacob Karnchanaphati Memorial Award. By choosing one of our sponsorship packages, your generosity will enable us to continue supporting future Boyertown area high school students achieve their dreams of attending college.
The race honors the memory of Jacob Karnchanaphati, who passed away in July 2015. Jacob was 12 years old, just completing his 6th grade year at New Hanover-Upper Frederick Elementary. He was greatly looking forward to entering his first year at Boyertown Junior High East. This year, we would be celebrating Jacob’s high school graduation.
