Nanette Quinn Gobbler 5k
March 4, 2017 9am
Join us for the 7th Annual St. Mary’s School Gobbler 5k to benefit the Nanette Quinn Memorial Scholarship Fund.
As a teacher of French and sponsor of the Student Council at St. Mary’s for 29 years, Nanette Quinn touched the lives of many students and colleagues. Her influence on these lives, however, was so much more than one of longevity in the workplace. She infected us all with her special spirit, enthusiasm, and passion or as the French say – joie de vivre.
After her death in February of 2009, the student council wanted to do something to honor a woman who gave them so much, thus was born the idea of the Gobbler 5K. Funds raised from the race will benefit the Nanette Quinn scholarship fund that helps young women attend St. Mary’s, as well as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The 6th Annual Gobbler 5K will start at 9 am, and participants will enjoy a course that starts at the school, winds through the surrounding neighborhoods, and ends back at the school. An hour after the 5K begins, the 400 meter dash for children under 10 will start on the track.
There will be food, music, and activities for the kids, so sign up today as a runner, or if you can’t make it, as a spirit runner!
