2019 Derby Run Results

The fourth annual Derby Run in memory of Justin Lopes is a 5k Run/Walk and 10k Run that will begin at Terry Sanford High School, Justin’s alma mater. The course runs through the scenic Haymount area as well as the Fayetteville Technical Community Campus and will finish at the Terry Sanford High School baseball field. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash. Participants are encouraged to wear their best Derby Run hat and/or costume. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumed runners, best decorated strollers and best Derby Run hat.

About the Cause

Net proceeds from the Derby Run will go to local charities that benefit children. These include The Child Advocacy Center in Fayetteville, Cy’s World Foundation and the Justin Richard Lopes Memorial Scholarship. The Child Advocacy Center offers children a safe place that supports the prevention, investigation and prosecution of child abuse. Cy’s World Foundation was founded in 2010 to honor Cy Garber. Cy’s World Foundation seeks to promote a love of the outdoors to children. Two scholarships were created in memory of Justin Lopes and are awarded every year through the Cumberland Community Foundation to a graduating senior from Cumberland County High School.
