Please save the date, register, and come together as a community for an untimed 5K run/walk benefiting Andrew “Sal” Perruzzi. Sal, a CEHS junior and cross country team member, was recently diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma. All proceeds will go directly to the Perruzzi family. This event is student led and organized by the 2023 CEHS cross country team captains and the Class of 2024 student council. The race is set for May 28th at 9:00 a.m. and will start at Cape Elizabeth Middle School, following the same 5k course utilized by the Turkey Trot and Cape Challenge. Race t-shirts will be provided to registered participants. Sal is known for sporting his signature shades while running, so we ask that all participants race in sunglasses. General donations may also be made on the registration site. Come together, cherish each day, do good, Run for Sal!
