Zach Monaghan Memorial 5k

ZM17

The 2nd annual Zach Monaghan Memorial Run will be held on Sunday, September 18, 2016. Zach graduated from Union High School in May 2015. He was a member of the Union High School Track and Cross Country Teams. Although he was born with a very special heart he never allowed it to limit his strength or determination. His enduring love for his family, friends, faith, and running was an inspiration to all that knew him.

Zach passed away on June 27, 2015 from complications following open heart surgery. This run will be an opportunity to honor and remember Zach. All proceeds will go to the Zachary Thomas Monaghan Memorial Fund. This Memorial Fund will provide college scholarships to members of the Union High School Track and Cross County teams selected each year by the coaches to receive the “Zach Monaghan Character Award.” Additionally, the Memorial Fund will provide financial assistance to youth programs, with an emphasis towards mission trips.
