Activities: Running race, 1 Mile

In memory of Paul "Hook" O'Malley who believed in the Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical Health of the youth in his community. 

The "1 Mile Firecracker Race" at 707 North South Road, August 21, 2022 is in memory of Paul "Hook" O'Malley, a local boxing trainer who succumbed to cancer on September 25, 1992.

"Hook" was a tough man with a generous nature and common bond with people from all walks of life. He was at ease in a press conference or guiding a troubled adolescent. He had a moral philosophy of what was right. He would say "Straighten up and fly right!" We who believe in his philosophy and the hereafter know that he is soaring high above us with a watchful eye on all that he loves. This race will be a testament of the great love and devotion his family and friends have for his memory and worthy cause. Hook's loss is endured knowing he lives on in our hearts and souls.

All proceeds will benefit the Lackawanna county unit of the American Cancer Society.
