Justin Cruz Run 2014 was another great success!
Sunday November 2, 2014 proved to be an arctic event! The temperature was 40 degrees and the winds were whipping between 20 and 25 knots, but the sunshine was present and the genuine cause did not keep runners and walkers away to benefit the Justin Cruz Scholarship Foundation for a 5k run and a 2 mile walk.
128 runners completed this 5k race with over 60 there for the 2 mile fun-walk.

The Wall High School art classes from Mrs. Mychelle Kendrick joined in a competition to design the memorial T-shirt, which was won by Erin Clabby. Kristy Karnavis had her design printed on the back of the shirt.
The pictures for the event were taken by standout sophomore photographer, Jane Stout, who has done an amazing job.
Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers and competitors – we look forward to seeing you next year!
