First Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K planned Oct. 4

The first ever Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K will be held Saturday, Oct. 4 at 4pm at Champlain College Miller Center on Lakeside Avenue in Burlington. The run will benefit the Sarah Ramsey Strong Fund, a non-profit organization created by Sarah’s family and friends to benefit the Sarah Ramsey ’12 Strong Scholarship Fund at Champlain College established in her memory.
Strong was a dynamic, passionate, creative individual who, as a Marketing Advertising major at Champlain College left an undeniable impact on those around her. Her zest for life and pushing the status quo was both inspiring and challenging.
The Scholarship Fund was created to support third or fourth year marketing students who have demonstrated strong academic performance and wish to expand their professional and international experiences while attending Champlain College, like Strong did. This year, the non-profit named Lauren Buniva, class of 2016, as the inaugural recipient of this award.
At the race, there will be raffle tickets available for purchase for a variety of great prizes donated by our sponsors and local businesses, as well as an after-party at Arts Riot.
