Edison State Holds 5K to Benefit Seth Bishop

Seth Bishop
Edison State Community College's 5K for a Cause will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016, at the Piqua Campus. The race is held annually to benefit community members in need. This year's race will benefit Seth Bishop, of Sidney, Ohio, with his fight against cancer.

Diagnosed with testicular cancer in June of this year, Bishop's cancer has spread to his lymph nodes and lungs. Seth is a 2015 graduate of Fairlawn High School in Sidney, where he was active in baseball and basketball. In his free time, Seth enjoys playing PlayStation and Xbox.

"Seth has been so very strong not only mentally, but physically as well," said Sue Bishop, Seth's mother.

"I am overwhelmed by all of the support that we have received from Shelby County and the surrounding area," added Bishop. "So many people have reached out and sent cards of encouragement and hope that Seth will win this battle. This race is another kind offering of support for Seth."

Registration begins at 8 a.m., followed by the official start of the race 9 a.m. Beginning on the East end of Edison State's Piqua Campus, the five-kilometer race is an out-and-back course, and is run entirely on pavement.

Proceeds raised from the event will help offset costs associated with Bishop's cancer treatments.

Those interested in participating can pre-register for the event online now through October 27 at Entry fees are $20 for pre-registered participants and $25 for race day registrations. Pre-registered participants will receive a free t-shirt and additional shirts will be sold for $5 on race day.
