The Canyon Cross Country team, along with the New Braunfels Running Club, is sponsoring a 5K on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 in memory of Nolen Vargas.  Nolen was a member of the Canyon High School Cross Country and Track teams and earned 8 letters in the sports.  Nolen was tragically taken from us on July 3rd of this year.

In Nolen's memory, a memorial scholarship is being set up through the Cross Country Senior Class of 2011 at Canyon High School.  The former team members are sponsoring this run to raise money for scholarship funds.  This is a run Nolen's team members hope to hold annually.

The run will start at 8:00am in Landa Park.  Registration will take place online or at Picnic Area 11 on race morning beginning at 7:00am.

We are inviting anyone who likes to run to come and take part in this.  If you aren't a runner and would just like to made a donation or cheer everyone on, please come and show your support.
