NEWTOWN SQUARE–This Saturday, June 16, the Billy Keane Foundation will hold their 3rd Annual Billy Keane 5K and a 1 mile family run to help assist families in Delaware County who are facing difficult times due to an illness or tragedy.
According to the foundation, Billy Keane was a "friend, brother, and fiancé."
In June 2009, he passed on to a better place after a 16 month battle with colorectal cancer. Billy was one of the most generous people we knew. If there was a cause being represented, you could always count on Billy to make a large donation!
The Foundation plans to hold a fundraising event a year and shortly, thereafter, will choose candidates to receive a onetime financial gift to help with their immediate needs, according to the website.
The race starts at 10 a.m. at Ridley Creek State Park at Pavilion 17.
