2019 Be T.R.U.E. - 5K Run/Walk Details


The “Samuel Williams Leadership Foundation” was established to highlight the positive and inspiring character traits in youth.  Sam Williams completed his Sophomore Year at Wootton High School.  Sam was an honor student, outstanding community volunteer, and Eagle Scout, who tragically passed away in June 2013.  The foundation was established to share and continue Sam’s message of being Trustworthy, Responsible, Uplifting, and Enthusiastic.   These traits are highlighted in the   “Be T.R.U.E Leadership Award” at Wootton High School.   The goal of the foundation is to raise funds to support high school students to attend highly regarded leadership Programs.  To date the foundation has awarded over $20,000.00 to Wootton Students who have attended Training programs at American University, George Mason University and Rotary Leadership Conference.   The “Be T.R.U.E. Leadership Award” is hosting its 6th annual 5K run/walk & Wootton Wellness event at Wootton High School on March 23, 2019.   On-line registration is required by Friday, March 1st, to guarantee a t-shirt for race day which will be in the race packet on pickup day.
