The 4th annual Quinn Memorial Fun Run and 5K Run/Walk will be held Saturday, Sept. 21. This event is being held in conjunction with the St. Columban’s Fall Festival in order to fund a scholarship in memory of Bishop Hogan students Abby Quinn Boies and Joshua Quinn to be given to a Bishop Hogan graduate to help further their education. Joshua Steven Quinn died as a result of a farming accident in August 2003 and Abbigail Faye Quinn Boies died of a brain tumor in January 2015. Josh and Abby were the son and daughter of George W. and Marta Quinn and Grover and Mitzi Seaboldt. Last year, the Quinn Memorial Scholarship fund distributed $8,500 in scholarships. All proceeds from this event will go towards the scholarship fund while promoting fitness among youth and offering an event in which families with children of all ages can participate, as well as keeping Josh and Abby’s memory alive. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the race will begin at 8 a.m. All runners and walkers and four-legged friends are welcome.
