CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - All women students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to join the Penn State Lehigh Valley team in the fight against breast cancer as they participate in the Women’s 5K Classic beginning at 9 a.m. on Sat., Oct. 12, at Lehigh Parkway.

Women of all fitness levels are encouraged to lace up and join the fun.
