The Matoaca community lost a beloved friend in a car crash on Woodpecker Road on June 11, 2018. Her husband, children, grandkids, family members, friends, and colleagues all miss her dearly. Her Warrior family wanted to find a positive way to remember her energetic spirit which is why we originally started organizing a race in her memory. For twelve of her twenty-four years as a front office secretary at Matoaca High School, she cruised the halls and campus to stay healthy and get her steps in for the day. We found it to be a natural decision to organize a 5K in her honor. Full proceeds of this racce will be used to build the Dorothy P. Ott Scholarship Fund to help graduating seniors with college expenses. Dorothy’s husband Lonnie, her daughter Toni, and her son Cody are all part of the scholarship selection committee. Last year, the inaugural race raised $6,500 for the scholarship fund! We are proud of how many people and organizations participated last year. Whether you volunteered, donated, sponsored, or participated…WE THANK YOU! Thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you on the race course!
