Nick Clare run is Saturday at Hastings High

The 8th Annual Nick Clare Memorial Run will be on Saturday, May 2.

The first memorial run was done as a way to give tribute to the life of Nick Clare. Because it was so successful in benefiting the Hastings Community and the Hastings High School athletic programs, the run has continued.

Contributions from the run go to the Hastings High School athletic programs and the scholarship in his name. Contributions have helped needy students participate in sports and receive scholarship money. This year a local charity will also benefit from the run proceeds.

The run is also a fun community event that anyone can participate in. Many nice door prizes are donated by local merchants.
