5k Run/Walk for Jim & Kid's races

5k Run/Walk for Jim & Kid's races
Sun 09/26 8:30AM – 11AM

The Run for Jim was established in memory of Jimmy Bashaw who died at the age of 45 from brain cancer. Jimmy was a teacher and longtime girl’s basketball coach at Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans. Jimmy’s family and friends wish to remember him by continuing his kind and charitable ways by helping others in their time of need. 100% of the proceeds from this event are used to aid residents of Franklin and Grand Isle counties with expenses related to cancer and catastrophic illnesses. These awards are distributed through the Jim Bashaw Cancer and Catastrophic Illness Fund at Northwestern Medical Center. This Fund has distributed over $550,000 since 2001.

Win an apple pie! 5k race is run on paved loop.  First mile fast.  Second mile a gradual uphill and finishes fast.  Apple pies for age group winners!  Walkers start at same time/same route.  The Kid's Races varied according to age.  Proceeds benefit the Jim Bashaw Cancer and Catastrophic Illness fund.
