MASON, W.Va. — Local students will benefit when the Northbend Church in Mason hosts a “Fall 5K for Kane” on Nov. 6 at the Stewart-Johnson V.F.W./Lottie Jenks Memorial Park.
The walk/race is being held in memory of the late Kane Roush, and all proceeds will be donated to the Kane Roush Scholarship Fund.
Registration will begin at 9 a.m. the day of the event, with the race to begin at 10 a.m. Early registration before Oct. 14 will guarantee participants a race shirt. A limited supply of the shirts will be available on race day.
