The 4th Annual Rush Run 5K Run/Walk, hosted by the Monongalia County 4-H Teen Leaders, is in memory of Sydney Rush. Sydney was a bright star shining on everyone around her. She was an outstanding 4-Her... A true example of "Making The Best Better". Sydney attended Clay-Batelle High School and was a state track champion and a member of their state championship cheerleading squad, as well as a 4-H member, a Young Life youth, and much more. In September of 2013, she was involved in a fatal car accident on her way home from a youth event. We miss her and in her memory, we host this event she would have loved. The Teen Leaders wear pink in Syd's honor, & invite you to join them and put your pink on. 

Proceeds benefit The Sydney Rush Monongalia County 4-H Teen Leader Memorial Fund which helps Mon Co youth continue to enjoy the benefits of 4-H camp by providing four camp scholarships each year. And new this year we will place additional proceeds toward future scholarship funding for higher education.
