The Knights of Columbus Council 10195 of Wilbraham is holding its 4th Annual Knights of Columbus 5K Scholarship Race virtually this year! Perfect for getting the whole family out or setting a goal for your socially distanced exercise.
This community-based event began in 2005 as the Peach Festival Road Race and provides the sole funding for our Knights of Columbus College Scholarship program. To date, we have awarded approximately $48,000 in scholarships to local high school students planning to attend college through race participation and the generous donations of our sponsors.
We invite you to run or walk 5K between September 19 and September 26th. 5 kilometers is 3.1 miles. That is about 12.5 times around a regular track or about 6,500 steps. You will be supporting a great cause however you want to measure it.
