About This Activity

Join us for the 3rd annual Run for Maggie, a 5K Memorial Run/Walk and One Mile Fun Run benefitting the Maggie Daniels Memorial Scholarship at Discovery High School, and celebrating the inspirational life of a beloved counselor, teacher, friend and runner.

Every participant will receive an artist-designed t-shirt with one of Maggie's favorite quotes on it. Regular t-shirts are free.  Dri-fit and long sleeves are available for an additional $5.  Additional t-shirts are also available for purchase.  All proceeds will go toward the Maggie Daniels Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Registration must be complete by October 26 in order to receive a t-shirt on race day. Those who register after October 26 will receive instructions on how and where to pick up their shirts at Discovery High School in December.

Trophies will be given to top overall female and male finishers, top female and male finishers from Discovery High School and NCHS, and top female and male finishers in the following age brackets:  12 and under; 13-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; and 60 and over.

Special thanks to the City of Newton Police Department; Big Kahuna Timing; Susan Wicklin; friends and family of Maggie Daniels; and the staff, faculty and students of Discovery High School and Newton-Conover High School.
