LAKE RIDGE, Va., September 10, 2015 — The Quincy Conner Foundation (TQCF) is pleased to announce the fourth annual 5K for Quincy and Fun Run, which will be held at Lake Ridge Middle School in Lake Ridge, Va, on September 26, 2015, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
This race is one of two annual fundraising events that TQCF has hosted since their inception in 2009. This race intends to bring the Lake Ridge community together to help raise awareness.
TQCF is a 501(C)(3) organization that is devoted to the remembrance of 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 of 2005. The Foundation’s goal is to raise money through various events and award scholarships to high-school students.
“Being a member of the TQCF board is an honor. It's amazing to be involved with a group of friends to do great work in honor of a friend whose life was cut too short,” said Tracey Watson Lyons, 5K chair. ”We hope to see lots of runners, walkers, and children on September 26 to carry on the spirit of our friend, Quincy Conner.”
The community is invited to join us on Saturday. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. with the Kids Fun Run immediately following. Post-Race snacks and music entertainment by Whitham Productions, will also be made available.
