This will be the Third Annual 5K Memorial Run in Memory of Samantha Brochu, who left our world much too soon in September of 2016, due to unexpected heart failure, at the young age of 27.
Samantha was a vibrant, active woman that enjoyed running for great causes.
All proceeds from this event go into The Samantha Brochu Memorial Scholarship Fund, and every June, a graduate from Hazen Union High School, pursuing a degree in the education field, will receive a scholarship from this Memorial Fund!
If you would just like to apply for the scholarship, the link to do so can be found below! If you are unable to submit through an online form, please contact Caitlyn Bottiggi at: ([email protected] or 802-888-5026 ext 284) and she will send you a hard copy of the application to fill out, and you can mail it to her once completed.

When registering- after choosing a t-shirt size, it prompts you to a donation page, please don’t feel as though you have to additionally donate! However, there is a separate donation page linked to the registration site so that those that can’t make it, or choose not to walk/run can still help out! Let’s make this an event to remember! Anyone that receives this scholarship in years to come will be grateful for this event!
ALL CHECKS CAN BE MADE OUT TO “SAMANTHA BROCHU MEMORIAL FUND”
