The 30th Annual Brian Demchak Hope Run/Walk 5K will be held on Sunday, May 20th at UPMC St. Margaret.   Runners, walkers, strollers and pooches are invited to attend this morning of fitness, fun, and healthy competition.  In 2017, the event raised over $100,000 to fill in the gaps with hope where it does not exist with things like transportation, medication, nutritional education and opportunities for physical activity for the underinsured and underserved.
