The top male and female high school student finishers will also be awarded the Adam M. Lawton ’99 Memorial Cup. A portion of the proceeds of the 5K will be directed to the Adam M. Lawton ’99 Memorial Scholarship Fund – an annual scholarship for a deserving Northwest Catholic student in memory of Adam Lawton ’99.

Race day registration runs from 8:30-9:30am, with the race beginning at 10am. The family fun and picnic will follow the race and continue until 1pm. The post-race gathering will include food, beverages and fun for the whole family. All proceeds of the event will go toward scholarships to help deserving students enjoy a Northwest Catholic education.
