Joey Gardner was a 2016 graduate of EPGHS who passed away suddenly in 2017 from ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia). Joey had an impact on the community before his passing through his humble, kind spirit and love for all those he encountered. All funds raised from this race supports The Impact Award given to deserving senior students in recognition of a trustworthy, kind and humble spirit demonstrated by passionate effort and respectful behavior toward staff and students. Students are not able to apply for this award. The potential recipients are nominated by select members of the EPGHS staff. Last year we were able to give 2 students each a $3000.00 award.
