5cacia: The Story​

The men of the Acacia Fraternity are proud to announce our 13th annual 5cacia: A 5k For Pancreatic Cancer Research on March 27th, 2021! The 5cacia was conceived in 2008 when Alumni Brother Justin Baldinger lost his grandmother to pancreatic cancer. From then on, Justin and the Ohio Chapter of Acacia made it their mission to raise awareness about the disease and help find a cure to one of America's deadliest diseases.

After 12 successful years and over $150,000 raised for the Lustgarten Foundation, we are excited to start fundraising for our 13th annual race with a goal of $10,000!

The 5cacia continues to be Ohio University's largest Greek philanthropy.  In 2014 and 2018, 5cacia was recognized by Ohio's Sorority & Fraternity Life Office as the Greek community's most "Outstanding Philanthropic Event".
