WestGate@Crane – On Saturday, June 6, 2015, 104 people participated in the second annual
Running for our Future 5K. This is the first year it was held in honor of Chuck LaSota, a great
friend to the WestGate, NSWC Crane, and running communities.
The community event included a 5K (walk and run) and awarded runners in all age categories, as well as overall winners in both female and male. James Fleetwood (0:21:36) and Hannah Walls (0:21:55) clutched the overall male and female awards at the race.
The monies collected from 5K entries and sponsorships will continue to fund STEM focused scholarships. Students interested in applying for the scholarship should speak with their school counselor in August when scholarship criteria will be released. The scholarships will be awarded at the 3rd Annual WestGate@Crane College Fair on September 29, 2015.
