The Matt McLeese Mission Run was established in memory of Matt McLeese, a Perry Local School Teacher and Coach who was killed in an automobile accident. Matt had a heart for missions, willingness to serve God, and a love for running and teaching. Funds raised through this race have aided in building the "Matthew House" Dormitory for the Kweli Center in Tanzania, Africa where Matt had planned on teaching. In 2015 a scholarship for Perry Cross Country and/or Track Runners was also established. In addition this year, we hope to raise funds to supply a new water system for the Kweli Center in Tanzania along with scholarships for the Kweli Center teachers to expand their teaching skills.
