Event Information
8th Annual 3.7 Mile Piggy Trot
The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope, Inc. will host the 8th Annual “Piggy Trot” to raise funds for melanoma awareness and the dangerous effects of overexposure to sunlight and tanning.


The event will honor Glenna Kohl, a lifelong resident of Marstons Mills, who sadly lost her battle with melanoma, the fastest growing cancer in the US and the second leading cause of death in women ages 25-28. Approximately 63,000 cases of melanoma are being diagnosed yearly, and is the second most common cancer for women 25-29 years old.


The 3.7 mile race will begin at 10:00 am at Dowses Beach in Osterville, where Glenna served the Town of Barnstable as a lifeguard and swim instructor for five years. A “Kid’s Fun Run” for 10 and under will begin at 9:30 am.


Funds raised from the “Piggy Trot” will be allocated to the Fund's three main funding areas: research, awareness and giving back. To date we have donated over $295,000 to these areas to carry out our vision to live in a world where melanoma takes no lives.


The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope anticipates 500 participants in this year’s event.


Memorial “Piggy Trot” t-shirts are available to the first 200 registrants who register online before April 28th (if you are not asked for your t-shirt size, we have reached 200 registrants or it is after the April 28th deadline).


Awards, raffles, t-shirt/hat sales, refreshments and entertainment will immediately follow the race.
