9/11 Memorial 5K Run~Walk & Kids’ Fun Run
September 13, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am UTC-4$7 – $25
Annual fundraising 5K road race/walk in beautiful Gorham, Maine benefitting the Stephen G. Ward Memorial Scholarship Fund. Steve was a Gorham native, an athletic and academic leader in school, a funny, caring and vibrant man, and an ambitious, charismatic professional, just starting his promising career as a CPA for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 101st floor of the North tower of the World Trade Center when tragedy struck on September 11th, 2001. He lived life to the fullest and his loss still resonates for those who knew and loved him. In an effort to bring some good out of the tragedy of September 11th, Steve’s family established the scholarship which is awarded each year to a promising graduate from Gorham High School. Please join the 5th annual event to help raise funds to help the best and brightest achieve their dreams while engaging in a healing event to honor and remember Steve and all of those lost to us on that tragic day. The kids’ fun run starts at 8:15 with prizes for all! The 5K starts at 9:15. The 3.1 mile course is flat, residential and family/dog friendly. It is USAT&F certified, staffed with volunteers, has a water stop midway, and offers free t-shirts for the 1st 100 registrants and food, massage, and more for all! Awards for overall and age-group top finishers. The event is rain or shine. Register online for free. Walk, run, volunteer, donate, or just come out and cheer everyone on!
