Ashley White is a 2009 graduate of Kent State University and was commissioned as an Army Officer through Kent State’s ROTC program. She was killed in action in October of 2011. This race is a celebration of her life, a tribute to her service, and a reminder of the cost of freedom. Proceeds from this race are placed in the “Ashley White Memorial Scholarship Fund”. This year we are also collecting funds for Kent Social Services Food Bank to help feed the hungry in the local area.
