Please join us on Saturday May 8, 2021 for the 27th Annual Nancy Price Memorial 5K Run. Price was the recreation director who actually put the recreation program on the map. She had Veteran's Park in Youngstown built up to what it is today from just a field. She did this by grit and determination. She was a fixture at the park and became friend/parent to all the children who came by the park.
Price passed away from cancer far too soon. Today, this race seeks to carry on her hopes and dreams for the youth of the community. Proceeds from the event go toward the Annual Nancy Price Memorial Scholarships, which are given out to graduates from the area who possess the values she held and who are active in the community.
The race will start in front of the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Hall in the Village of Youngstown and features an out and back course through beautiful Fort Niagara State Park. The 5K Run/Walk starts at 10:00 sharp! Event organizers are also planning a 1/2 Mile Kids Fun Run through Veteran's Park that will take place at 9:30am. Participants will be required to wear a mask at all times (except while running) and/or adhere to social distancing guidelines.
