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 at https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/
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.
Every participant will receive an artist-designed t-shirt with one of Maggie’s favorite quotes on it. Regular t-shirts are free. Dri-fit and long sleeves are available for an additional $5. Additional t-shirts are also available for purchase. All proceeds will go toward the Maggie Daniels Memorial Scholarship Fund. Registration must be complete by October 26 in order to receive a t-shirt on race day. Those who register after October 26 will receive instructions on how and where to pick up their shirts at Discovery High School in December.
Trophies will be given to top overall female and male finishers, top female and male finishers from Discovery High School and NCHS, and top female and male finishers in the following age brackets: 12 and under; 13-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; and 60 and over.
Special thanks to the City of Newton Police Department; Big Kahuna Timing; Susan Wicklin; friends and family of Maggie Daniels; and the staff, faculty and students of Discovery High School and Newton-Conover High School.
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!
