Nineteen years later, Jean passed away from breast cancer on April 24, 2009.  Cancer affects millions of people every year and this family is determined to join in the fight against cancer so that other families may be spared the heartache that they have become all too familiar with. 
Proceeds:
All donations and proceeds are split between the local Nancy Quatrini Fund, American Lung Association, and National Breast Cancer Foundation 
Purpose:
This event’s mission is to help those within our community get the care that they might otherwise not be able to afford, as well as contribute to the research devoted to curing various types of cancer.  Cancer is not picky; it affects EVERYONE no matter age, race, or religion.  This event is meant to raise funds to fight cancer and bring a community together.
This is something that the Onofre family would like to turn into an annual event. Each year, they would like to support and honor the victims and survivors of various cancers.

Marathon, 50M, 100K, 100M, 100M relay

The "Pine Creek Challenge" is just that, a place to challenge yourself by seeing how far or how fast you can run. It will be a scenic trail run along Pine Creek in northern Pennsylvania. The Pine Creek Rail Trail stretches 63 miles from Wellsboro Junction to Jersey Shore and is repeatedly listed as one of the finest bike rides in the Northeast. This section is through the "Grand Canyon of the East", the Pine Creek Gorge. The Gorge stretches for 47 miles. It is nearly a mile wide and 1,450 feet deep at its deepest point. This section of Pine Creek is listed as a National Natural Landmark. It's popular with canoeists and rafters in the spring and trout fishermen are drawn here all year long.


We have set up an out and back course that uses 25 miles of the upper canyon section. We will  have the start/finish at Asaph. The 100 miler runners will go 2 out and backs to Blackwell, passing through the canyon 4 times. The 100k folks will go once to Blackwell and return. The 50 mile course will be ½ of the 100 mile course, going once to Blackwell. The marathoners will turn around just below Tiaghdaton.
