Stevy's Run scheduled July 6 in Tishomingo

Tishomingo —

Stevy’s Run ... We Still Believe is held in memory of Stevy Lyn Cellum.  Stevy passed away Oct. 15, 2011, at the age of 16, after a long battle with cancer. 

She was a young woman whose strength, courage and faith inspired an entire community and all that knew her. This year’s run will be July 6 in downtown Tishomingo at First United Methodist Church, 202 North Neshoba Street.

Early registration is available online at www.signmeup.com/92993 or in person at Clary Insurance, 217 West Main Street, Tishomingo.

Entry fees for early registration are $25 for 10K; $20 for 5K; and $15 for the 1 mile fun run/walk (strollers welcome).

Registration will be available July 6 from 6-7 a.m. Entry fees will increase by $5.

Courses for the Run are USATF certified and sanctioned; and races will be professionally timed by Breakaway Racing of Sterling.  Overall male and female winners of the 5K and 10K will be presented trophies and top 3 finishers in those events will receive medals.

Proceeds from the Run will go to The Stevy Cellum Memorial Scholarship Fund, UMW School Supply Drive for Johnston County Students and Stevy’s Closet c/o The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center 10th Floor Child Life Program.

Stevy’s greatest fear was being forgotten, so thanks to the sponsors and organizers of this fun, family event, ran in memory of “Our Hometown Hero.”

Stevy is the granddaughter of long-time Konawa residents Otis and Retta Gilbert.
