LAKE ARIEL AND SCRANTON – Scranton and Wilkes-Barre personal injury law firm Scartelli Olszewski, P.C. will be a title race sponsor for Lacawac Sanctuary’s 6th Annual Lake to Lake 8K Trail Run, Woods Walk and Dog Wag to be held on Sunday, Oct. 20 at the Sanctuary.

The race course will lead participants over the trails of Lacawac Sanctuary in Lake Ariel, offering views of 400 acres of rich biodiversity and natural resources.

Attorney Peter Paul Olszewski, Jr., a shareholder and managing partner with Scartelli Olszewski and the chair of the board of trustees of Lacawac Sanctuary, said that “protecting the environment is important to Northeastern Pennsylvania. We are happy to support such a worthy cause in order to help preserve and educate the public about one of the region’s natural landmarks.”

“The Lake to Lake event is a great way to get out and enjoy the beauty of Lacawac and nature while supporting the work that takes place at Lacawac’s environmental education facility,” said Craig Lukatch, president of Lacawac Sanctuary.

Race registration is $30 for the 8K and $20 for the woods dog walk. Cash awards will be given in the trail run for overall male and female and medals for top three finishers in age groups. The race results will be overseen by The Scranton Running Company using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip timing.
