The Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) Foundation recently received $1,200 raised from the 19th Annual Tim and Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race hosted by the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce on July 8.
The race is held each year to honor the memories of Tim and Susan Cook, who died well before their time in a tragic car accident in 2002. Nearly 100 runners participate in the race each year.
Coach Chris Monheim assisted with promotions and coordinated the race logistics to ensure the event ran smoothly. Funds raised for the Cook Race are donated to the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to Chambersburg Area Senior High School students who model the characteristics exemplified by the Cooks.
“We appreciate the racing community’s support of this event that allows us to uphold the legacy of Tim and Susan Cook each year during ChambersFest,” said Angela Schaeffer, director of operations of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce.
The CASD Foundation receives donations for the Tim and Susan Cook Scholarship Fund throughout the year from individuals, alumni, CASHS faculty committees, booster clubs and various community organizations. If you would like more information about donating to this scholarship, please contact Angela Lynch at email@example.com.
The Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce works with the Chambersburg Road Runners Club to present the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race every year as part of ChambersFest.
