Run for Hope 5k
May 13 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Our Annual Run for Hope will be Saturday, May 13th, 2023. Registration is $20 in advance and $25 at the race. All proceeds support Church Street Preschool and The Kayla Samascott Wilson Scholarship.
Kayla Samascott Wilson was a loved community member, wife, mother, and friend who passed in Feb 2020 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. The Kayla Samascott Wilson Scholarship was founded in 2021 to honor Kayla’s love of running and is awarded to families of Church Street Preschool who are in financial need of assistance with their tuition or have lost a parent.
The first Run for Hope was held in 2015 on Mother’s Day weekend to honor the mother of a former Church Street Preschool student. Hope Oakes was only 35 when she passed away in 2014 from myelodysplasia, a form of leukemia. Run for Hope continues to be held on Mother’s Day weekend in memory of Hope and all parents no longer with us.
This 5K Run/Walk is a fun community event, and all ages and abilities are welcome. The race this year is not chip-timed, rather we will have a race clock at the finish and will record all participant’s times.
8:45 am: Kids Run (short sprint)
9:00 am: 5K Start
There will also be kids activities and a raffle on site!
