Laura Cody McNaughton lived her life in service to her family, her community and the well-being of all of those around her.  She was taken from us in a tragic car accident on June 28, 2018.

Laura has been a runner since middle school and found a renewed passion for running after returning to Vermont. Her family and friends have created this run/walk event as a way to come together the last Saturday in June each year in remembrance of Laura. It is also intended to be a fun activity families can participate in together. Any proceeds from the race will support the Laura Cody McNaughton Memorial Fund.

This Memorial fund was established in order to commemorate Laura’s life and to support young people pursuing the principles of service to family and community.  The Memorial Fund will award a scholarship annually 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.
