Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Panerathon 2020, which was to take place in downtown Youngstown Aug. 30, was canceled. We expect Panerathon 2021 to take place in downtown Youngstown next August.
Panerathon is the primary fundraiser for the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center and Joanie’s Promise, which ensures that anyone in the Mahoning Valley in need of breast diagnostic services has access to the best care available regardless of ability to pay. Together with more than 12,000 participants and spectators, our sponsors and community supporters raised over $525,000 through the 2019 Panerathon. To date, Panerathon has collectively raised more than $3 million for the Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley in support of the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, the first comprehensive breast care center in the region.
Panerathon is a 10k run and a 2-mile fun run or walk, which also includes a Kids Run.
