Memorial 5k benefiting the Monroe Family

July 26, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Saturday, July 26

Prince William Forest Park

Benefit WWP

Tired of running the same trails?  Come out and try this new race at Prince William Forest Park. The race winds through the service roads and trails of one of the most beautiful parks across the country.  You’ll enjoy racing against the clock, your friends, your family, or just your will!

The cause:

We are raising money for the Monroe family. When Lauren was killed in an automobile accident last November, she left behind her husband, three children and a niece who had become incorporated into their nuclear family. Lauren’s youngest child is mentally ill and currently in a group home away from the family. There are extra expenses associated with the youngest child, and the loss of one income is significant. While we can’t return wife and mother, we can help with the financial well being of the family.

So whatever your motivation –  raising funds for this worthy cause, a new PR, or a walk with friends – please join us in memorializing an amazing woman.  Wife, mom, nurse, friend…Lauren did it all with humor and love. Carry her in your heart on this day and we promise it will be lighter!

Now offering a virtual run option for those who cannot make it on race day.  You will receive a medal and have an option to buy an event shirt as well.
