Elorapalooza was started to raise funds in memory of Elora Geier. We have had 12 successful Elorapaloozas with hundreds of people participating each year and many local businesses, including Allegheny Health Network, supporting our cause. These events have raised more than $170,000 to benefit the Elora’s H.O.P.E. Fund. The Fund supports blood cancer research, provides scholarship funds for local students majoring in Special Education and now also makes grants to cover non-medical needs of cancer patients and their families.
2017 marked our 12th Annual Elorapalooza 5-Mile/5K/1-Mile Walk, Run or Lollygag, which took place on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at the North Park Lodge (NEW LOCATION). This year, we also expanded the event to include a 5-mile race and Kids’ Fun Run.
