The Mom McGrail Memorial Scholarship 5K Walk - Run

The 2023 5K is Virtual & In Person
Online Registration will be available from now.

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. The                    registration form will go live on Monday, July 3rd and stay up one week after the in person                    walk ~ run Saturday, August 12, 2023. The in person 5K walk ~ run will take place on Saturday,                     August 5, 2023 @ 9:30am.  Please post your virtual 5K photos to the Mom McGrail Facebook                     page and use the hashtag #mommcgrail5k2023.
