John Petrovick 5K
5K Family Fun Run/Walk and 100-Yard Kids' Dash
Join us at Patterson Park on Sunday, April 27, 2014 for the second annual John Petrovick 5K. This 5K family fun run/walk and 100-yard kids' dash was created in memory of John and focuses on raising much needed funds for Dr. Q’s Quest (Johns Hopkins) in support of brain cancer research. John's motto, Inside All of Us is Hope, was worn proudly in each race he ran and we hope that you will join us, as we continue to search for a cure and celebrate John’s life.
This year our website is set up so that you can fundraise. Remember to hit the button "Set up your Pledge Page" after you register in order to do so. We hope that you will support the cause!
*Please note: this is a non-timed race

On April 28, 2012 our dear friend, John Paul Petrovick, passed away after fighting a courageous battle with brain cancer.
John graduated from Archbishop Spalding High School, Stetson University, where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, and the University of Baltimore Law School in 2011. John was chosen to serve an internship with the Office of the Public Defender in Baltimore. He also worked for the Maryland State Legislature.
John loved life and in his spare time enjoyed hiking, snowboarding, cooking, and loved dogs. John had a passion for running and, in 2008, while training for the Baltimore Marathon, collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. He was diagnosed with an astrocytoma tumor. Despite his chemo treatments, John continued to pursue his passion - running. In 2010 he was able to run the full Baltimore Marathon. His drive and determination inspired his Doctor at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosaas, to take up running and he ended up running alongside John in the Baltimore Half Marathon in 2011. "Dr. Q" now has a running team which focuses on raising money for brain cancer research.
John's motto, Inside All of Us Is Hope, was worn proudly in each race and we continue to pass his motto on.
