We chose a 5k to help pay tribute to the legacy left behind by Denny Carrigan. Denny was an educator and coach at Rising Sun-Ohio County School Corporation. He received his education while working and supporting his family. For this reason, we established the Denny Carrigan Memorial Scholarship via the Ohio County Community Foundation to help working adults who are returning to school to pursue a degree.

A 5k seems fitting since Denny was an avid runner who encouraged his kids and others to run. He believed that running helped build discipline and mental toughness.


We chose Memorial Day because Denny was a veteran of the United States Army and a member of American Legion Post #59. He believed in attending the Post #59 Memorial Day events to pay tribute to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
