WELLINGTON, FL – June 8, 2018 – The Father’s Day 5k - a local race benefitting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will be holding its 6th annual race on Sunday, June 17th starting at 7 AM at Royal Palm Commons Park, in Royal Palm Beach, FL. Registration Fee is $35 and goes up to $40 on race day.

The event was a started in 2012 by a group of like-minded women who were fundraising and training to complete in the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon as part of LLS’ Team in Training Program. “We we’re looking for new ways to raise money and awareness for the LLS” said Sheryl Esquilin, co-founder and current Director of the annual race.

The event has become a family tradition, with a kid’s race and free diaper dash for the tots, it’s a perfect way to start off Father’s Day!
