Second Annual Beacon Of Hope 5K Planned

The Second Annual Beacon of Hope 5k Walk/Run, in memory of Kevin P. Enterlein, is planned for Sunday, Nov. 18. The event will begin at Tiger Shark Cove Park at 7:30 a.m.

“Last year’s event was so much fun. It brought friends and family together for a good cause and a good time. My children and I are excited to make it even bigger and better this year,” said Andrea Enterlein, Kevin’s wife. “We had more than 200 participants and raised close to $30,000 for Beacon of Hope.”

Kevin P. Enterlein lost his battle with colon cancer in 2016 at age 51. During his time battling the disease, he established Beacon of Hope with the mission of raising funds to provide support for underprivileged families dealing with cancer. The nonprofit is now run by his wife and their two adult children.

All proceeds from Beacon of Hope’s 5k will benefit the Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope Inc., a Palm Beach County not-for-profit organization that eases the burden of qualified local cancer patients by paying their non-medical bills and providing information resources.
