About This Event
The proceeds from the event go to support a scholarship fund created in Mark’s name at Cardinal Spellman High School. Our goal is to offer a need-based, full scholarship to a deserving senior at Cardinal Spellman High School on an annual basis. Read about this year’s scholarship recipient at our website www.markcreedonmemorialrace.org .
Even more than supporting the scholarship fund, the event offers us—as a family and community—an opportunity to remember Mark, talk about Mark, and celebrate Mark’s life while doing something that he loved to do – run in D.W. Field Park with his family and friends.
The Run: The 3.5-mile course will be a fun, scenic tour through D.W. Field Park past Waldo Lake, the Brockton Reservoir and the lush landscapes. The run begins at the top of Tower Hill, completes a full loop of the Park, and then finishes at the horseshoe parking lot just past the top of Tower Hill.
The Walk: The 2.2-mile course will be an abbreviated course of the run. The walk begins at the top of Tower Hill, turns left at South Street and a right back into the Park, and then finishes at the horseshoe parking lot just past the top of Tower Hill.
