OUR MISSION:  Lisa's Army is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comfort to courageous individuals currently undergoing cancer treatments. After being diagnosed at age 20, amidst her own battle with ovarian cancer, Lisa Loonstyn-Golden launched a crusade in the name of fighters everywhere. She believed that no one should fight alone, so, with the help of her family and friends, Lisa's Army was formed. It is an organization dedicated to comforting men, women, and children with cancer. The goal of Lisa's Army is to make a difference in the world just like Lisa was able to accomplish in her short time with us. Now, we continue to fight in her name, and invite you to join our army!

In Lisa's memory, Lisa's Army holds the Lisa's Army 5K Run & Walk every October to raise funds for our signature Comfort Care Packages. The race brings together families and friends to enjoy the Fall weather in Philadelphia's beautiful parks. We have a children's arts and crafts tent, fundraising competitions, fantastic music, and a photo booth. This year's race will take place at Memorial Hall/Please Touch Museum on October 12, 2019. The race begins at 8:00 AM. This is a rain or shine event.   

Make sure to register by Tuesday, October 1, 2019 in order to guarantee a race shirt. 

Online race registration will close on October 9, 2019.  You can register on race day beginning at 7:00 AM. 

Race day registration is $40.00 for adults and $25.00 for kids 17 years of age or younger. 


Participating in the Lisa's Army 5K Run & Walk is more fun when you share the experience with your coworkers, family, and friends. Team members come together to celebrate, honor, and remember those touched by cancer.  Every team has its own story, but we all come together with the same goal - comforting those battling cancer.  Your support is greater as a team because of your combined fundraising efforts! This year the top fundraising team wins your personal VIP Tent with breakfast!

Individual fundraising is also available and welcomed.
