Join Legacy of Hope and Earn Your Break on April 16th - April 17th as Philly's top runners tackle the 109-mile Schuylkill River Trail in support of the city's most financially-distressed cancer patients.  

John and Kellen with Earn Your Break have committed to complete the entire 109-mile trail over 2 days as a pledge of support to those with cancer going hungry in Philadelphia.

Donations are being accepted to help us reach our goal of:


These funds will be used to provide cancer patients and their families with much-needed groceries to prevent hunger and relieve financial burden.

The Schuylkill River Trail winds its way through a variety of urban and wilderness areas, offering trail-goers a rich and diverse experience.  Most of the trail was built over the top of existing rail lines. 


Our SRT 109 event will begin in Frackville at 9 am on Friday, April 16th.  Aid stations are positioned every 8-12 miles along the trail.

Across Philadelphia, thousands of cancer patients go hungry each week.
