The second annual Jillian Young Memorial Scholarship 5k Run/Walk will be held at Elsberry High School on June 14 at 9 a.m.

For those who want to participate but are unable to complete the 5k course a one-mile walk will also be available.

All participants who enter before May 21 are guaranteed a free race T-shirt.

Runners/walkers should plan to arrive at 8 a.m. in order to pick up their event packets and preregister.

All proceeds will go to the Jillian Young Memorial Scholarship Fund.

“Last year we raised over $4,000,” said Amy Martin, event coordinator. “We’re hoping to do the same thing this year. I hope we can get everyone to participate and walk or run for Jillian.”

Anyone with questions and/or comments is encouraged to contact Amy Martin at 573-535-1580 or by email at amylynnmartin1221@gmail.com.
