2019 Derby Run Results

The fifth annual Derby Run in memory of Justin Lopes will begin at Terry Sanford High School. Both the 5K and 10K course runs through the scenic Haymount area as well as the Fayetteville Technical Community Campus and will finish near the Terry Sanford High School baseball field. There will also be a 1 Mile Fun Run and face painting. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash. Participants are encouraged to wear their best Derby Run hat and/or costume.

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.
