The Montevideo High School Track and Cross Country Club is organizing a Maddie Gorham memorial 800m run/walk event this Saturday, July 13 at 9am at the track. Gorham, a 2019 graduate of Montevideo High School, died earlier this week as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident south of Morris.

The event organizers write: “Any and all are welcome! Depending on numbers, more than one ‘race’ may be run. There may be a racing event, jogging event, and a walking event. You don’t have to be a runner to participate! Be there to support each other and remember Maddie G! Let’s ‘Pack the Track’ for Maddie G!”

Free will donations will be accepted, with all proceeds used for the creation of a Maddie Gorham memorial scholarship. For more information, visit the Facebook event page
