Description

The fourth annual Nicholas Fillinger Memorial Run will be held on May 13, 2017 on the beautiful campus of St. Bernard Prep School in Cullman, Alabama.  Nicholas died tragically in a training accident in September 2013.  St. Bernard was one of his favorite places to run.

The run benefits the Nicholas Fillinger Foundation as well as the Grace Chapel Choir (a youth community service choir) that Nicholas was a member of.  The proceeds help fund the choir tour.  In addition to musical performances they will be serving in various inner-city missions and helping with community service projects. The Nicholas Fillinger Foundation ministers to orphans and children rescued from human trafficking.  This year's proceeds will help fund a trip to Peru to minister to children in the "Not Forgotten" orphanage.  It also ministers locally in educating young athletes about safe and healthy training techniques, and provides a scholarship to a graduating senior.
