The Run for Jim Memorial Fund was established in memory of Jimmy Bashaw who died at the age of 45 from brain cancer.  Jimmy was a teacher and longtime girl’s basketball coach at Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans. Jimmy’s family and friends wish to remember him by continuing his kind and charitable ways by helping others in their time of need.  The proceeds of this event are used to aid residents of Franklin and Grand Isle counties with expenses related to catastrophic illnesses.  These awards are distributed through the Jim Bashaw Memorial Fund at the Northwestern Medical Center.  The Jim Bashaw fund has distributed over $475,000 since 2001.

Make this a family event ! Kids' race starting at 8:30 on the track. 

 5k Race description. 9:30 a.m.

Win an apple pie!!!  The 5K race is run on a paved loop in picturesque St. Albans. The first mile is fast with a gentle downhill. The second mile features a gradual uphill and the course finishes flat and fast.

 Apple pies for top finishers and age group winners are always a crowd favorite!

 Walkers start with the 5k runners and follow the same course.  Walkers are not timed therefore no awards are given, however, Mimmos pizzas are raffled for the walkers!
