Fox Mill 5K Benefiting the Cameron Pepera Memorial Foundation

September 10, 2016

This year’s race will honor a special Fox Mill resident, Cameron Pepera, who passed away suddenly from epilepsy on September 2, 2015. Cameron was a Thompson Middle School 7th grader, a Titan Cross Country team member, a Tae Kwon Do black belt, and an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan.

All proceeds will benefit The Cameron Pepera Memorial Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to provide educational programs and support for Thompson Middle School students in Cameron’s memory.

The public is invited to join in honoring and remembering a great young man and encourage all 5K runners & spectators to wear RED, Cameron’s favorite color.  After the race, stay for awards, refreshments, and other fun activities for all.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
