Ann Higginbotham, a life-long educator in Campbell County and Middlesboro City Schools, passed away in September of 2016. Although she lost her fight with ovarian cancer, she was as resilient in sickness as she was in life. She was a BEAST! The proceeds of this run will benefit students from Campbell County High School and Anderson County High School (where her daughter spent 18 years as an educator). All monies raised will go toward the Ann Higginbotham Memorial Scholarship Fund.
This event will also offer the community ovarian cancer awareness. Ovarian cancer is a silent killer and is often not detected until the latter stages.
The run will begin at Anderson County High School in the parking lot facing Charles G. Seivers Boulevard, near the library. It will run up Charles G. Seivers Boulevard toward Clinton Physical Therapy Center; resulting in an up and down course. You will run 1.5 miles, turn around, and end in the parking area where you started. This course is challenging, in fact, it’s a BEAST.
The walk will be out a half mile and back. It will begin after the race approximately 8:35.
