About This Event
Michael Pennefather, a student of Holy Family Academy (HFA), died at the age of 12 after battling several illnesses and disabilities. Michael was an inspiration to so many people in so many ways. He loved sports, and he knew more about the virtue of hope and the value of a smile than most who have lived decades longer. All proceeds from this event will be dedicated solely to building the St. Padre Pio Chapel that will be located at the school Michael loved. The 5K course will run along the streets of Gainesville (Virginia), the Fun Run is an untimed event for children ages 10 and under, and all race day activities, including the start and finish area, will be located at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 8212 Linton Hall Road, in Gainesville.
