About This Activity

It's official:  Running a 5 Miler or Run/walking in our 5K will be a rememberance for our hero, son and friend!  In January of 2006, Morris Rugby and the Gibson Family started a memorial scholarship fund, "The Gibby," to honor the memory of their son and teammate David Gibson.  The Scholarship is given to a deserving senior from the Boys U18 Team at the conclusion of their spring season.  In 2014, the scholarship committee expanded the scholarship to award both a senior graduating boy and girl from the U18 Lions teams.  The scholarship is an award of financial aid to further his or her education and/or rugby career.  To date, The David Gibson memorial scholarship has awarded $24,000.  The criteria of the award includes leadership, dedication, commitment and club involvement.  This year, 2015, the 5K/5M run will raise funds for local Montville charities which will be announced soon.
