On Saturday, March 25th the Suffolk County Council of Boy Scouts of America and the Andrew McMorris Foundation will host the Second Annual Andrew’s Top Gun Run to raise the funds for Scholarships and Scouterships.
In September of 2018, Boy Scout Troop 161 was hiking the Greenbelt Trail when a drunk driver tragically hit them. Several scouts were severely injured; as a result of his injuries, 12 year old Andrew McMorris passed away. The lives of his family, friends, community and fellow scouters were forever changed by his loss. Andrew McMorris was an incredible, kind, and passionate individual with insurmountable potential for his future. In the wake of this immeasurable tragedy, we choose to step forward and celebrate Andrew life, his 17th birthday, love of aviation and scouting!
As a participant YOU will have the unique opportunity to run or walk the runway in Andrew’s honor. This is going to be a fast and flat run. An opportunity for a personal best time given the course and the cool weather. We truly hope that you will consider supporting Andrew’s Top Gun Run 5K
