Welcome to the Will Frederick Memorial 5K Run For The Kids
After consulting with community officials in regards to the safety of all volunteers, participants, and our community’s health during this time of concern regarding COVID-19, we are rescheduling the Will Frederick 5K Memorial Run for Saturday, May 30th. All registered runners/walkers will have their registration carried over and we are excited that we have the opportunity to accept new participants who will receive shirts with their registration. Unfortunately, we will not be able to add additional sponsors since the shirt design has been completed. While we are saddened to have to postpone the event, we are grateful that have been able to reschedule!
Will’s family and friends have fond memories of Will’s smile and laughter. He loved life and loved investing himself in the children and students of the York community. We could think of no better way to honor Will’s life and to extend his legacy than to create a 5K event for the sole purpose of continuing Will’s investment in the lives of young people. The first annual Will Frederick 5K raised over $10,000 that was used to send nearly 40 students to various camps during 2019. The remaining funds are being used to set up a weekly afterschool program in the York Community.
At 23 years old, Will Frederick had a lot of life to live. Recently married to Hannah Crews, Will was looking forward to having a family of his own but in the meantime, Will was pouring himself into children and students in the York area. Will unexpectedly passed away in August 2018 following complications from surgery. All proceeds from the Will Frederick Memorial 5K event will be used to continue Will’s legacy of investing in children and students.
