The second annual Paul Hahn 5K Memorial ‘Ohana Run is being held to honor and continue the mission Paul took to heart to reach out to others and warn them of the need for colorectal cancer screening at age 50 or earlier for those with a family history. The race will be held at Mackinaw Valley Vineyard and Winery which Paul founded. There will be both a 5K race and a 1 mile fun run/walk.
This is a terrain race and the course winds around the property, through the vineyards and around the lakes. Those who ran and walked last year said it was a special course and different then other races they have participated in.
We thank our generous sponsors; Central Illinois Endoscopy Center, Adams Outdoor, Midwest Orthopedic Center and The Catering Company.
The race proceeds will be used to benefit the mission of CRC Life. The CRC stands for Colorectal Cancer and this is a new local non profit founded with the mission of improving and assisting in the lives of local colorectal cancer patients, their caregivers, colorectal cancer survivors and those treating colorectal cancer in Central Illinois.

The name ‘Ohana was chosen for the race because Hawaii held a special place in Paul’s heart. ‘Ohana means “family” in the broadest sense, not just those you are related to by ancestry but those you choose to love as your own. Paul achieved many things in his life, but family and friends were at the core of what he loved. When it was clear his time was short, Paul asked his ‘Ohana to continue the mission to encourage others to get screened early and be spared the loss and heartache that cancer inflicts on its victims and their ‘Ohana. Join us with your ‘Ohana to celebrate life and family as we stand up together to strengthen one another in our fight against cancer.
