In September of 2010 the Erica Pombrio Foundation hosted the very first annual Erica’s 5K Run/Walk which has become our signature event. Since 2010 this annual event has helped us raise nearly $60,000 in support of several local families fighting cancer.
Our 2014 event was another huge success we had a great turn out on race day 281 participants and we more Corporate Sponsors then ever before!
Our 2013 event was spectacular!! We are so blessed to have the generous caring support of 253 participants, donations and local sponsors.
In the third year we expected 250 runners/walkers and the community came out in record numbers! We had more than 430 people sign up for the 2012 event.
We always enjoy watching all the children participating in the Kid's 1K Fun Run! Check out last year's pictures! The kids get the race day going with lots of joy! We look forward to this year's kid's run
Erica's 5K Run/Walk is a family friendly event held in the heart of Merrimack. All ages are welcome to join us as we honor Erica’s fight, remember those we have lost to cancer and celebrate our survivors.
Our Angel Erica
Daughter, Sister, Friend
Erica Nicole, a baby girl born with a head full of hair
and a set of big brown eyes that loved to stare.
As she grew into a young little girl,
she loved to play dress up with Nana's rhinestones and pearls.
She was a tomboy in dresses
who made plenty of messes.
Having to sit in the bathtub just to eat her food,
she created a monstrosity as she chewed and chewed.
A daughter who gave her mother a run for her money,
who woulda thought, she'd grow up to be so funny.
She went from bullying her two sisters and brother,
to a young woman who protected and loved them just like her mother. ~~~~
She was a loyal and true friend,
all the way from beginning to end.
She puts the sun in our sunshine,
because our hearts will forever intertwine.
With a smile that would light up a room,
and an enticing scent of sweet perfume.
Beautiful, intelligent and talented too,
are qualities of Erica's just to name a few.
Strong courageous and brave also come to mind,
Our Angel Erica is truly one of a kind.
