Event Description

Sheepdog Connection was established to honor the life of Ryan FitzGerald - We lovingly called Ryan a “sheepdog” because he had an attitude of service above self, he was intensely loyal,  and he protected, supported and encouraged people around him.

We provide opportunities through our partner organizations for young people to experience the trips that helped to form who Ryan was as a young man and a Sheepdog.  Our partners include:

The Sheepdog Scamper & Sprint was established to create awareness of the need for young men to learn what it means to be a man in today's world. The experiential trips young men can participate in provide first-hand opportunities to learn the key attributes of service to others, loyalty, dependability and more.

We are looking for individual runners, families, church groups, running associations, middle/high school track and cross country teams to participate. We also encourage corporations to join us in a community-building event, contribute to their employees' health and support the growth of Sheepdog Connection.
