WOODBRIDGE, Va., October 15, 2015 — On Saturday, September 26, 2015, The Quincy Conner Foundation (TQCF), a 501(C)(3) charitable foundation, held its fourth annual 5K for Quincy at Lake Ridge Middle School in Lake Ridge, Virginia.
TQCF was created to honor Quincy Conner, a Woodbridge native, devoted son, father, husband, and friend whose life ended suddenly at the age of 28 from a massive heart attack in December 2005. The Foundation’s mission is to raise education dollars, awarded in the form of college scholarships through various events and award three scholarships to high-school students who are less fortunate and provide them an opportunity to attend college and achieve their own goals. The funds raised as a result of the 5K will go directly towards these scholarships.
The overall top male winner, Kevin Perlow of Arlington, and overall top female winner, Ava Larkin of Woodbridge, were awarded $130 in gift cards from VA Runner and Potomac River Running Co. along with a certificate. Certificates and gift cards were also given to each of the top male and female winners in various age categories. For a full list of the race results, click here. Race day pictures are also available for viewing on The Quincy Conner Foundation Facebook page.
The day also included a Fun Run for the children to participate in, as well as cupcake decorating, face painting, and entertainment.
"It was so great to see friends, family, and the community come together for the Foundation, said President of TQCF, Steve Jones. “Woodbridge has always been home, and you instantly feel that the second you come to an event like the 5k for Quincy. We want to thank all of our runners, sponsors, and fantastic committee members for their support. Quincy's legacy is growing because of your dedication to our mission.”
The foundation would like to thank all of our sponsors involved.
