PARMA, Ohio –  Register now for former Mayor Dean DePiero’s Ninth Annual 5k Run/2k Walk, which was just awarded with the Pride Award for Best Community Event by the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce.  The race takes place Saturday, June 23 at Byers Field (corner of Day Dr. & Ridge Rd) at 8:30 a.m. 

Fox 8 News Anchor Bill Martin will serve as Master of Ceremonies and also compete in the race.  All proceeds from the Run/Walk benefit the Parma Hospital Foundation. 

“I started this race nine years ago, in my first year as Mayor, and I also run in it every year,” said DePiero.  “It’s a fantastic opportunity to not only give back to the Parma community by helping the Parma Hospital Foundation, but to also have some fun.”
