Run for Maggie 5K Registration Now Open

Registration for the 3rd Annual Run for Maggie 5K Run/Walk and One Mile Fun Run is now open! Please take just a minute to register here, and knock that off your to-do list. We’ve set a goal for 300 participants for our third year, and we need your help to reach that! Please have a friend register with you, or organize a group from your work, school, neighborhood or church to come out and enjoy the morning. Run for Maggie is the primary source of funding for the Maggie Daniels Memorial Scholarship, but it’s also an important day for Maggie’s friends, family, and former students as it’s a time to honor her and remember her many gifts by doing something she loved.

And in case you missed the news, last year we had such strong candidates for the scholarship that the committee voted to divide the funds and award two scholarships. The winners were Aoife Sinclair, who is attending NC State, and Sarah Kulchar, who is attending Lenoir-Rhyne University.  Congratulations to these two girls! Your support of this year’s run will allow us to continue to recognize and reward a deserving DHS student or students.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Run for Maggie! Please like us on Facebook and share our event news to help spread the word!
