Annual 5K Run/Walk

9th Annual 5K Run/Walk

Join us on April 27th, 2024 for our annual Raising the House 5K Run/Walk! Run or walk with friends, on a team, or with your furry companion! 

The funds for this event support the mission of Raising the House – to provide financial assistance to students and families within the Palmerton Area School District while honoring the memory of Blaine House.


The Raising the House 5K run/walk was the first event created in memory of Blaine House. The reason for its creation was two-fold:

Honoring his passion for fitness and excitement in taking another step forward.

Carrying on the memory of the educator that had such a profound effect on the several hundreds of students that he touched over his many years of teaching.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 10th annual race in 2024! We look forward to seeing your participation in our 11th year!
