Registrants being accepted for 5K to benefit Mark Hunter Scholarship Fund
The Salisbury Police is organizing a run/walk to be held next weekend that will raise money for the Sgt. Mark “Big Train” Hunter Scholarship Fund.
The veteran Salisbury Police officer died earlier this year from a heart attack. His family established the scholarship fund because Hunter had a passion for young people and their educational success.
The Sniggle Snaggle 5K event is Nov. 16 at Knox Middle School at 9 a.m. Organizers say they are continuing to accept registration applications.
“Hunter always had a nickname for everything. He would go to McLaughlin’s store for a snack, which he called a sniggle snaggle,” said Salisbury Police Lt. John Lanier.
All of the proceeds raised from the event will to the scholarship fund. The entry fee is $20 and $10 for the fun run.
There will be awards given to the top three male and female finisher and the top male and female in each age categories.
The age categories are as follows: 12 and younger, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 and older. All runners and walkers will be given T-shirts.
