The CK5K event raises funds to support
the Carolyn Keen’10 Memorial Scholarship
that was started
in memory of Carolyn Keen ‘10 who
lost her life in a car accident in her junior year. Carolyn
was a member of the Cross Country
and Track team so a 5K is
a perfect way to celebrate her talents and contributions to the Gwynedd
community and keep her memory alive. The scholarship is awarded each year to a
rising Junior at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School who, like Carolyn, has
displayed admirable dedication and commitment to her school, and whose family will benefit from the assistance with her tuition.
$25 (plus $2.66 processing fee) if you register by Sept. 9 and receive a CK5K T-Shirt! $30 (plus $2.66 processing fee) after September 9 and through Race Day., T-Shirts given while supplies last. Registration opens at 7:30 AM on race day.
The CK5K welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and ages. This 5K / 1 Mile walk takes place on Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School and adjacent University grounds, consisting of gravel, payment, and track terrain. The course is stroller friendly. Professional chip timing is being used this year, and results are available immediately upon crossing the finish line.
