The Junior League of Lancaster would like to thank all of the runners, walkers, and sponsors of our 18th Annual Run4Luck, which was held on Saturday, March 11, 2023! Without your attendance or support – whether financial or otherwise – you were an instrumental component in the success of this fundraiser. Through your charitable contributions, the League is able to continue the breadth and depth of our mission right here in Lancaster County and preserve its legacy for another 100 years to come.

The Junior League of Lancaster Invites Adults and Kids of All Ages to the 19th Annual Run4Luck, which will be held in March 2024 (stay on the lookout for an official announcement in Fall 2023)!   

Join us for the 5K Run, the 2-Mile Walk, or the Kids’ Fun Run!

To entire community-at-large, we offer our sincerest gratitude for your steadfast generous and enthusiastic support of this yearly fundraiser, which, thanks to you, has become a well-known staple in Lancaster County. The Junior League of Lancaster greatly looks forward to welcoming and cheering on all of our athletes and JLL cheerleaders in Spring 2024!
