The Mario Lemieux Foundation will celebrate the start of hockey season in unique fashion.

A 6.6K run will take place on Sunday, October 6. The race will begin and finish at Consol Energy Center, with the to-be-determined course weaving through the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, and will benefit multiple charities.

A one-mile “family walk” will also be offered for those who would like to participate in a less grueling activity.

Lemieux, the Penguins co-owner and former great, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in January of 1993, and has since spent considerable energy toward aiding cancer research.

Proceeds will benefit the cancer and patient care initiatives of the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the youth hockey initiatives of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
