 In Memoriam - Jim Schleicher

Jim Schleicher

On October 6, 2019, Jim lost his battle against multiple myeloma – only six days before the First Annual Schleicher’s Hikers 5K. Jim loved riding his bike on the MA &PA Trail. It was his suggestion that Ravens Roost #74 hold a 5K at the Trail to benefit the International Myeloma Foundation. So we his family and friends, continue to honor his memory this way. 

Our first three 5Ks raised over $33,711! 
Jim will truly be remembered as a role model to his family and friends and as a shining example of a life well lived. Jim remained positive throughout the painful ordeal of years of chemotherapy, two stem cell transplants and multiple courses of radiation and was one of the strongest people around. He cherished his wife, family and friends and we will make his memory a blessing through this annual 5K. 

The Annual Schleicher’s Hikers 5K in Jim’s memory will be held every year on the second Saturday in October. We remain committed to raising funds for multiple myeloma research until a cure is found. The Schleicher Family, Ravens Roost #74, the IMF and all Jim’s friends appreciate your help to support this effort.

Can't join us in person, Then Join Us Virtually! Also don't forget to purchase a Remembrance Path in honor or in memory of a special loved one.
