Ramon Rocha 5K to Benefit The Arc of L-W is Sept. 29

The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming will hold its annual Ramon Rocha Run/Walk on Saturday, September 29th at St. Mary's Church, 4 Avon Road in Geneseo.  Registration and packet pick-up is scheduled for 9:00am, and the race will begin at 10:00am.

The Ramon Rocha Run/Walk is a 5K (3.1 mile) race through the scenic Village of Geneseo, with prizes awarded to overall winners, and by age group.

Participants can register at the event, or in advance by visiting or calling (585) 658-2828 ext. 133.  The cost is $20 per individual participant, or $15 per person for teams of four or more people.  The first 250 registrants will receive commemorative long-sleeved t-shirts.

All money raised will benefit The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming, a private, not-for profit agency committed to enhancing the lives of individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in our local communities.  The event is named in memory of Ramon Rocha, a SUNY Geneseo professor and board member at The Arc.

In addition to the run, the event will feature live music by 78 RPM Big Band and food from GioVanna's Pizza & Pasta.  Additional sponsors include Relph Benefit Advisors, Once Again Nut Butter, KeyBank, Alden Pharmacy, MVP Health Care, Genesee Valley Federal Credit Union, the Rocha Family, and Fit Club 24/7 of Geneseo.  The race will be electronically timed by Yellow Jacket Racing, and it is the final event in the "Geneseo Trio" partnership of road races, following the Oak Tree 5K/Half Marathon and Friday Knight 5K.
