I DID THE GRID, DID YOU?

    On Saturday, May 26, 2018, the eleventh annual Cpl. Christopher G. Scherer “I Did the Grid” 4 Mile Competitive Run, 1 Mile Fun Run, and 4 Mile Recreational Run/Walk will be taking place on the streets of East Northport.

    On July 21, 2007, Christopher Scherer who was a Corporal in the Marine Corps lost his life while serving our Country in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. He was born and raised in East Northport and grew up playing in the neighborhood that he fondly referred to as ‘The Grid’. On the first day of Memorial Day Weekend participants of all ages can experience four miles of the [grid] streets of East Northport while running, jogging, or walking from the starting and ending location at Pulaski Road School

On this morning of the race we ask you to promise not to forget, nor let your children or their children forget Chris and all the men and women who have gave their lives in service to the United States of America. We ask you to give up any personal awards for this day. Instead, each bib will have the printed names of fallen military from either Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. Each participant will carry that name and upon completion of the course, will ring a bell to signify that the Airman, Coast Guardsman, Sailor, Soldier, or Marine. named on the bib will be remembered for making the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.

The proceeds from this event provide troop support, sponsorships for service dogs, scholarships and warrior wishes. This 4 Mile Competitive Run, 1 Mile Fun Run, and 4 Mile Recreational Run/Walk is geared for the whole family. Please join “TEAM CHRIS” (as a runner, walker, jogger, sponsor. or spectator) and remember our fallen, support the Cpl. Christopher G. Scherer Semper Fi Fund, and our Community.

Hope to see you on race day!

Semper Fi,

Janet and Tim Scherer
