About This Activity

The GEM 5K was established in 2014 with the purpose to benefit someone in the Haysville community. G.E.M. stands for the Gary Engels Memorial. Gary Engels was a former English teacher at Campus High School and also a beloved coach. He battled cancer for two years but left behind a legacy in the Haysville community. This year’s beneficiary is Campus High School freshman, Jessica Kilpatric.  As a child, Jessica was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma.  Recently, it returned and has required that she take a leave from the activities she loves to do in order to fight this monstrous battle.  

This race has been changed to a "virtual" race.  Participants are encouraged to participate at home and report their times to us! We will also use the hashtag #JessicaStrongGEM5K to support each other on social media.  Information on how to participate will be coming out soon.

**Tshirts will be handed out at a later time due to the change in race.  In order for us to provide the most money for Jessica, we don't want to order too many tshirts beforehand**

This race is not officially timed.
