Kevin Cook Spirit Run Fundraiser Carwash Moved To Garden Grove
(June 18, 2010)—Garden Grove, CA—Organizers of the 5th annual Kevin Cook Spirit Run have announced that the fundraising carwash to be held on June 26, 2010 has been moved to Garden Grove. The new location for the day-long carwash the Grace Baptist Church, 5802 Santa Catalina Avenue, Garden Grove, CA 92845.
The carwash is one of several fundraisers held prior to the annual 5K run that honors scholar-athlete Kevin Cook who was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 24. Funds raised at the carwash help offset the expenses of operating the 5K event at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley, CA.
The Kevin Cook Memorial Foundation was established following his death as a way to honor his achievements on and off the sports fields and tracks, and to donate scholarships to qualifying athlete-scholars and grants to various local high schools’ cross country teams.
450 runners took part in the 2009 5K Kevin Cook Spirit Run, and organizers are expecting more than 500 for the 2010 event.
