CRR Awards Scholarships

The Colonial Road Runners sponsor and direct the annual Queen's Lake 5K at New Quarter Park each year to raise money to award scholarships to local high school students in the running community. The race is run in memory of two late Virginia Peninsula Road Racing Hall of Fame members - Michael Mann and Tom Ray.

The CRR Board met on June 7 and awarded the $500 2016 scholarships to:

  •  Gaphne Glueck, who will attend East Carolina University and pursue a nursing degree;
  •  Abby Johnson, who will attend Longwood University and pursue a degree in speech therapy; and 
  • Curtis Ivanoff, who will attend Bethany College in Lindeborg, KS.
Abby and Gaphne with their scholarship checks.
Paul Pelletier, CRR secretary, presented checks to Gaphne and Abby on August 13 at Colonial Sports. Curtis moved from the area after high school graduation and received his via mail. We wish them continued success in their college careers, their running careers, and in life. 

The Scholarship Fund began in 1999. If you would like to donate to the fund, you can do so at the next Queen's Lake 5K or you can donate anytime by completing this form and sending in your donation to CRR.
