Among the volunteer organizers of the fundraiser are Paul's daughter Madison and Josh Morton of Johnstown, both 11-year-olds who have type-1 juvenile diabetes.
"I'm hoping by the time I'm 16 or 17, there will be a cure," Josh told The Leader-Herald last year while planning the fourth annual race.
Last year, the race brought in 180 participants, and the group hopes to increase the number to 250 or more this year.
The cost to register in advance will be $15 for adults and $10 for anyone 17 years old or younger. Advance registration can be done online at www.active.com.
People also will be able to register at the event. A one-mile "fun walk" will take place along with the 5K race.
