About Kelci and the Event
Family and friends of Kelci Gibbons established this run/walk to benefit The Kelci Ever After Memorial Scholarship Fund (administered by the Luzerne Foundation) that was set up to honor Kelci and to do good in her memory. Proceeds from the run benefit the fund which will distribute annual scholarships to high school and college students and to local youth sports, art and environmental programs.

Kelci was a free spirit who loved art, music, nature and having a good time. Preference for the scholarship will be given to students with a major or minor in art and/or environmental studies, but it is open to all students who are pursuing their passion and exemplifying her spirit.

In the past four years over $15,000 has been donated to various organizations including Dallas & Lehman High School student scholarships, King's College scholarships for Dress for Success, study abroad and service learning, the Arbor Day Foundation for Peace Trees for Kelci, donations to Frances Slocum State Park (trees and a camera for their environmental program), Back Mountain Youth Soccer, The Boys and Girls Club of NEPA.


Why a 6K and not a 5K? It's a 6K for Kelci. Kelci wore #6 on her jersey when she played soccer for Dallas High School (and as a member of the 2005 PIAA State Championship Team) and K, obviously is for kilometers, but for Kelci as well. We also like to be different. The 2K is a nod to her twinship.

The 6K Run starts at the boat launch near Pavilion #3, follows the road towards the boat rental area at other side of lake. You will leave the road taking a mostly paved path to the right, turn left towards the lake and run through the grass along the shoreline to towards the boat rental shed then loop towards the start. At the starting boat launch the run continues along the shore line to the beautiful Lake Shore Trail to the Campground Road, looping back at the Campground boat launch then back to the finish at the Pavilion.

The 2K Walk is the first part of the 6K, starting and ending near Pavillion #3.


The timed 6K race starts at 11 am and the non-competitive, not-timed 2K walk starts shortly after.

Awards to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place overall male & female runners, and male and female age group awards for top 3 runners in the following age groups: 12 & under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over. The 2K Memory Walk is fun, non-competitive and not timed.
