Welcome to the 12th annual Jack Roth 5K Rock “N” Run/Walk! We are pleased to announce this year's honorary race chair is lung cancer survivor and spokesman for Columbus Public Health, Jose Rodriguez.


We had a record year in fundraising in 2016, brining in $129,299 for the Jack Roth Fund, created to promote the vital research and treatment necessary to combat lung cancer, through the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, and to support Camp Netaim, a program in Israel for children with special needs. The race will take runners through central Bexley's beautiful neighborhoods, and include a fun filled morning with:

  • Food, music, awards and prizes!
  • The Gledhill Robbins & Talis Group of HER Realtors complimentary food, fun & fitness marketplace featuring local food, health and wellness vendors.
  • Kids activities: face painting, balloon making, glitter tattoos, braid bar & bouncy house.
