This will be the 10th and final year for a fundraiser walk in memory of former Lincoln Land Community College student Brian McMillen. The walk is taking for the last time on Saturday, May 27th, and will feature a 5-K run and walk, a 10-K run, and this year only, there will be an after-party!
Run committee member Craig McFarland says the original goal of the runs was to create an endowed scholarship for future Lincoln Land students. With that goal achieved, the committee talked with the family, and all parties thought having one final run would be the best option.
McFarland says with the yearly run coming to an end, McMillen will continue to be honored and not forgotten at Lincoln Land.
The run will begin at 8 a.m. on the 27th at the LLCC Springfield campus, with the after-party happening at the Chatham VFW Hall. Registrations will be accepted leading up to race-day at a discounted price, but you can show up that morning and register as well.
