Joe Gerace, left, Dorothy Schlaggel and Justin Calarco-Smith share a passion for helping cancer victims. As members of the Genesee Cancer Assistance Board of Directors, they took time to speak with me today about the upcoming Festival of Hope and 5K walk/run, the organization's major annual fundraiser.

Batavia Downs, at 8315 Park Road in Batavia, will host the event on Friday, June 3.

The 5k walk/run

The 5k walk/run is a new feature that was added to the Festival of Hope two years ago.

Registration starts at 4 p.m., followed by a "Lap of Honor" for cancer survivors at 5:45 and the official race at 6:15.

Schlaggel, an honorary board member and founder of Genesee Cancer Assistance, said this is not really going to be a "race," per se.

Calarco-Smith agreed.

Batavia resident Dave Chua -- pictured with his son, Kian -- is set to lead the Next Level Running Team, which will compete in the Genesee ARC Friends & Family 5K on Saturday.

Chua formed this team recently with the help of a friend. He was inspired to do so by his son, who has Autism.

The objective of Next Level is to raise money for the Organization for Autism Research. Chua's support of this organization is founded upon his desire to promote "practical research that will open avenues to fuller, more complete lives for those diagnosed with Autism."

Next Level runners are eligible for a variety of gifts and prizes donated by area businesses. These include sunglasses, water bottles, a recliner, a spa treatment, and more.

"In the meantime," Chua says, "our runners will be benefitting from the experience and insight of other runners."

In addition to running in the 5K race on Saturday, Chua is going to represent the team by running in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 7. If you wish to support him in either of these events, please visit http://www.firstgiving.com/davidchua1.
