Jane Arruda Memorial Scholarship 5K

Plainfield, CT

The proceeds raised from this event will be donated to the Jane Arruda Scholarship Fund and will be awarded to a graduating senior at Plainfield High School who is pursuing a degree in the field of education or animal sciences.  Jane touched the lives of so many and certainly left a lasting impression in her hometown of Plainfield, and beyond. Dress in pink to support breast cancer education and awareness.
