It’s only been a few short months since Elsberry was left in awe, following the sudden passing of Jillian Young. However, she has not been forgotten and thanks to a large number of people her legacy and name will continue to live on through the Jillian Young Memorial Scholarship.

In an effort to keep the scholarship funded for future Elsberry graduates, there will be a Jillian Young Memorial 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, July 13 at the American Legion Hall, located on Hwy 79 in Elsberry. Participants can pick up their packets or register starting at 8 a.m. with the run/walk starting at 9 a.m.

For those who have not registered yet, there will be a $25 fee the day of the event to participate, with all the proceeds going to the Jillian Young Scholarship. Awards will be given to both the top male and female finishers.

This will be the first 5k Run/Walk with the possibility of becoming an annual event.
