First Annual Honor Abe 5k!

This race has been created to help raise money for The Abraham Balawi Scholarship. Abraham was a talented runner, a loyal friend, and a respected young man. He was a 2015 graduate of Liberty High school and attended Mercer University, where he continued his running career. On August 6, 2017, a tragic car accident occurred and Abraham (who was a passenger) was killed instantly. Even though Abraham is no longer with us, his family, friends, and coaches have not forgotten him. The Abraham Balawi Scholarship was created to keep Abraham's memory alive and is awarded annually to a local high school runner who demonstrates the same attributes as Abraham and submits an application. This 5K is the main source of funding for that scholarship, with 100% of the proceeds deposited directly to that account after event cost have been covered. The race and scholarship committee hopes that enough money is raised to have two scholarships awarded this year (May 2020) with a balance that will support the race in the future. 

 

We encourage runners, joggers, and/or walkers of all ages to come out and join us! Everyone who registers before 10:00 p.m. on July 24th will receive a t-shirt. Late registers will have a chance to get a shirt as supplies last at the venue. This event is designed to have fun with running and honor Abe's legacy by running on the course that he ran when he was in high school. 

 

A Fun Run (one mile) will be set up for kids after the 5k, with unofficial results. This race will be held directly after the conclusion of the 5k. This will give the awards committee time to calculate results for the awards ceremony. Awards will be presented once all results are in and the Fun Run is complete. 

 

Medals will be awarded to the following winners:

1st - 3rd place Overall Male and Female

1st – 3rd place Male and Female age groups:
