LANCASTER, PA (Feb. 19, 2021) – Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and kick off the running season with the Junior League of Lancaster during its 16th annual Run4Luck. To ensure the safety of all race participants and volunteers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 event will be held virtually March 13-17.
“The decision for Run4Luck to be a virtual race was done with consideration of how the Junior League of Lancaster can safely serve, support and uplift our community while battling COVID-19,” said Angela Lutz, 2021 Run4Luck chair. “We applaud the frontline workers who have faced this pandemic with grace and courage and thank those who have stood by our side.”
