March Against Crime at the Abram Sorek Memorial Race @ Presque Isle State Park
Apr 6 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

We are pleased to partner with the Sorek Family again this year, combining forces (and 5ks) and resources to present the Abram Sorek Memorial Race on Saturday, April 7th at 9am at Presque Isle’s Rotary Pavilion. There will be a 10k, 5k, and 1 mile run/walk. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Abram Sorek Scholarship Fund and the Crime Victim Center of Erie, which provides direct victim services, community education and outreach. Please spread the word, march against crime, and keep Abram’s memory alive.

Abe touched many lives, and this race will keep his memory alive forever.  Abram lived his life vibrantly. Many of his passions included nature, lacrosse, fishing, hiking, and working out. He has a dynamic personality and was a great athlete and friend. He had a little mischievous spirit as well – always living with grace and full of laughter.

Abram gave anyone he met the feeling that they belonged regardless of where they came from or where they were going. He could make anyone laugh; He was much like the sun in many people’s life. His light was so bright that it warmed your heart, you couldn’t help but to smile when you were around him.

It’s only fitting that we all gather in one of his favorite places and run a race in his name and create great more memories together.
