This website is a community platform and forum to honor Abram Sorek, and how he lived his life.


Through remembrance, our annual race, and our partnerships with local community organizations, the Abram Sorek Foundation will provide awareness to our Erie community, and will offer support to the individuals and families that have dealt with their own loss and tragedy in life.



The majority of this years race proceeds will benefit the Crime Victim Center of Erie, PA.


The Crime Victim Center has been and continues to be active in the Sorek Family's life. Helping and supporting them through the toughest of times. Their organization has a positive and powerful impact in the Erie community. That is why we have chosen them to be the recipients of the proceeds of the 2020 race. 

In addition to the Crime Victim Center of Erie County, Abe's family has chosen WQLN to also benefit from the race this year.
