LACEUP FOR LAURA
The Lace Up for Laura Memorial 5k walk/run is a way to come together the last Saturday in June each year in remembrance of Laura Cody McNaughton who died in a tragic car accident on June 28, 2018. It is intended to be a fun activity families can participate in together with runners and walkers of all ability. The event will consist of two races held on Saturday, June 24, 2023 in Weathersfield, VT: an approximately 1/3 mile kids 12 and under fun run starting at 8:30 A.M. followed by a 3.1 mile (5km) race starting at 9:00 A.M for all ages and abilities. The starting line for both races will be located near the intersection of Plains road and Reservoir road. The 3.1 mile race will be an out and back race on the scenic dirt road known for its lack of change in elevation. Proceeds from the Memorial run will benefit the Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial fund and its annual scholarship which will be awarded to a graduating senior who exemplifies Laura’s leadership and giving spirit, and, is pursuing further education and training in a field where these principles may be put into practice.
