The Mom McGrail Memorial Scholarship 5K Walk - Run


The 2020 5K is Virtual
Registration online or paper available on home page.

Why:       The annual 5K Walk - Run was established by friends and family of Catherine "Kathleen"                                           McGrail to bring people and a community together for a good time in her memory all while
                   raising money for academic scholarship(s).

When:   The date was chosen in early August every year so that it would correspond with Mrs. McGrail's                               birthday on August 7th.  It will always be held on the 1st Saturday of August every year.  This year's                         5K is virtual due to COVID-19.  The registration form will go live on Mom McGrail's birthday;                             Friday, August 7, 2020 and it will run all August.  Please post your 5K photos to the Mom                               McGrail Facebook page and use the hashtag #mommcgrail5k2020.  

Where:  Historically the 5K has had a few different routes over the years before settling on the current                                     route that starts and finishes at the Stamford Central School parking lot.

How to get involved:  

                  Participant:  It is a family friendly 5K race for all levels; walkers, walkers with strollers, novice                                  runners, competitive runners, etc..   
                  Sponsors: There are 3 levels of sponsorship, all for under $100
                  Donators:  Nothing is too small, all proceeds go towards the college scholarships for local school kids                    Volunteer.  There are many jobs leading up to the 5K, especially the day of the race.
