Lilly’s Lope for Hope’s 5-kilometer run that had been scheduled for Oct. 9 in Philomath has been canceled because of challenges related to the ongoing pandemic, organizer Paula May announced. However, Lilly’s Lope plans to move forward with some fundraising activities.

“The Lilly’s Lope will still be having an online auction in mid to late October to raise funds for counseling needs and suicide prevention in the schools,” May said. “We also have an incredible T-shirt design and will be selling shirts and sweatshirts to still raise money as well.”

Lilly’s Lope needs items for its online auction. To donate, contact May at For more information about Lilly’s Lope for Hope, go to
