Parker Moore was a 20-year old sophomore at Linfield College, studying Business Management, when he was tragically killed on November 15th, 2014. Parker was also a member of the prestigious Linfield College Football Team, where he played Linebacker and wore jersey number 35. To honor Parker’s life and legacy, the McMinnville Police Department, the McMinnville Fire Department, and Linfield College have come together to present the Parker Archie Moore 3.5-mile Memorial Run / Walk. Proceeds from the event will go to the Parker Archie Moore Memorial Fund, which was set up by his family to provide scholarship support to a Linfield student who most exemplifies Parker’s outstanding character and qualities.
The Parker Archie Moore 3.5-mile Memorial Run / Walk will take place on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 on the Linfield College campus in McMinnville, Oregon. The 3.5-mile distance was specifically chosen to honor Parker and his passion for Linfield College Football. The course is scheduled to start and finish on the track that surrounds Maxwell Field, the home football field for the Linfield College Wildcats. The entire 3.5-mile flat course will be contained within the campus and it will include about a 1.5-mile portion along a well-maintained bark chip running path. There will be a water / Gatorade station located at about the 2-mile mark. Unfortunately, the course is not really conducive to jogging strollers and the like.
