The Jennifer Lundergan Memorial 5K is returning again this year. Lundergan was a PHS student who lost her life in a car accident in 2014. Since then, two of her friends, Mackenzie King and Allison Nail, have held a 5K in her honor. All of the proceeds and donations will go to the Jennifer Lundergan Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship has been given to a PHS senior each year for the past four years.
The memorial run will take place on October 6, 2018 at 11 a.m. at the Paoli High School football field. Registration and check-in will be from 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The registration fee is $35 per adult and $25 per student. All pre-registered participants will receive a shirt and a gift bag at the check-in table.
An awards ceremony will be held after the race. Awards will be given to the top three runners in each category. Following awards will be a balloon release and a time of prayer in honor of Lundergan. All participants will be given the chance to write their favorite memory or a note to Lundergan to be released with a balloon.
Come out to the Paoli High School football field on October 6 to walk, run and support everyone involved in the Lundergan Memorial 5K.
