Cook Race to Raise Money for Scholarships on July 8

CHAMBERSBURG, PA - The 14th Annual Tim & Susan Cook Memorial 1-Mile Race/Walk pre-registration deadline of June 23 is fast approaching. The race raises money for high school scholarships and will be held on Saturday, July 8 with registration beginning at 7 a.m. at the Chambersburg Memorial YMCA.
The women's and girl's race/walk begins at 8 a.m. followed by the men's and boy's race/walk at 8:30 a.m. Both races begin at Chambersburg Area Middle School and end at Chambersburg Area Senior High School (CASHS).
The race is held annual in honor of the late Tim and Susan Cook. Funds raised are donated to the Tim and Susan Cook Memorial Scholarship fund at CASHS.
Tim and Susan were both 49 when they died in a car accident in 2002. Both were graduates of CASHS, and remained involved with the school and their community. Tim was a mathematics teacher and girls' cross country and track coach, and Susan was and administrative assistant at Shippensburg University.
The scholarships funded by this race are awarded by the Chambersburg Area School District Foundation each May and keep the Cooks' spirit alive by contributing to the continued education of local high school graduates.
