Brain Tumor Society will benefit from upcoming 5K

There will be a fundraiser 5K for the National Brain Tumor Society at 11 a.m. Sunday at Tom Tudek Memorial Park, 400 Herman Drive, State College.

The Team Snap 5K will honor Mount Nittany Middle School autistic support teacher Jamie Barbarich Covol in her fight against a brain tumor.

Co-organizer Ann Mallison said Covol wanted to hold the race to show her sons Braylon and Layton the value of community support.

About 300 people have registered for the race.

Race-day registration — $20 for individuals and $30 for families — begins at 10 a.m. at the park pavilion next to its tennis courts.

There will be post-race refreshments and prizes at the pavilion.
