This is a non-profit fundraising event in support of the Meaghan Clark Scholarship Fund and the Topsail High School Music Department. It is in honor of Meaghan Clark who was just 16 years old when she fell ill from the seasonal flu. Due to complications, she left this earth on November 6, 2009.

Meaghan was a dedicated student, musician and daughter. The Meaghan Clark Scholarship Fund’s mission is to provide scholarships and encourage future musicians/scholars of Topsail High School to pursue their dreams.  The Meaghan Clark Memorial Scholarship 5K Road Race and 1 Mile Fun Run is a fun event geared toward runners of all ages and experience. Participation and staffing by Topsail School District Students provides an uplifting, enjoyable atmosphere in Meaghan Clark’s honor.
