The Don Scott Memorial Foundation invites all to participate in its eighth annual 5K Run to be held Sunday, Sept. 16. The race will start on Plandome Road at Mary Jane Davies Gazebo and finish on Nassau Avenue prior to Park Avenue. The race course is USATF certified.
Don Scott was a biology teacher, track coach, and a beloved leader at Manhasset High School for 42 years. On Nov. 4, 2010 he lost his three month battle with colon cancer. The Don Scott Memorial Foundation was founded to make a difference in the fight against colon cancer. The foundation is dedicated to reducing colon cancer instances throughout the community through increasing awareness and advocating preventative measures. The foundation also supports a student scholarship at Manhasset High School.
All participants will receive a specialized performance race shirt and enjoy music, food and drinks. There will be cash prizes for the top three overall finishers ($100, $50, $25) and medals for the top three finishers in age groups (male and female). Cost of registration is $30 online.
