The Norm Kulig 2Young2Go Foundation is a registered non-profit group that was started in 2009 by the siblings of Norm Kulig, Jr. Norm Kulig, Jr., lost his life in 2004 to mesothelioma at the age of 42 years.

Mesothelioma is an, as yet, incurable cancer that is linked to asbestos exposure. Ambler’s BoRit Asbestos Site is an EPA superfund clean-up site.

The Norm Kulig 2Young2Go Foundation puts on a 5K and 10K running race and a 1-mile walk to raise awareness of and research funds for mesothelioma. So far, the Foundation has given more than $100K in research money. The Foundation received an advocacy award in 2010 from Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center.

We chose a race to honor Norm because Norm was a runner. In his life, he had run races of all distances from 5Ks to marathons. It feels good to run races where the proceeds support worthy causes.

The race goes off promptly at 9 am.
