Benefits: We would like to hold this event to raise funds for a memorial scholarship fund (JoAnn McMahon Scholarship Fund). JoAnn McMahon was a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend to many in the Richmond, Kansas community. Our family was devastated when she lost her battle with cancer on July 23, 2004. We, as a family, would love to see her legacy live on through a scholarship fund. This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student who has been personally affected by cancer. We are asking the student to submit an essay and undergo an interview with the selection committee as precursors in the selection of the awarded candidate. We plan to make this an annual walk in order to award deserving students scholarships as well as honor our loved ones who have battled, survived and/or lost their fight with cancer.
Special Details: We will have luminaries for sale. The costs of the luminaries will be $3.00 each or (2) two for $5.00. We also welcome participants to sell luminaries to their friends, families and networks. We will light luminaries on one in field during the race and will light the remaining luminaries at the completion of the walk.
Participants may register individually or as a team. This online tool allows for individual donations and also will allow for teams to seek pledges donations for the walk.
