This is the fifth annual School 2 School Memorial 5K race hosted by Tonganoxie High School's Cross Country program
This race was originally organized in honor of Marilyn Weller to provide a scholarship opportunity to seniors at THS. Marilyn Weller graduated from the University of Kansas and worked as a physical therapist in the Leavenworth County schools for 32 years. She lived a full and meaningful life, inspiring those around her with devotion to family, friends, church, and the community. Her kindness and loving personality will never be forgotten. Half the proceeds from this year's race will be donated to the Marilyn Weller memorial scholarship.
The second half of the proceeds from this year's race will be donated in memoriam to the family of Mark Altman. He served at Tonganoxie Middle School from 2006 until his passing, first as assistant principal and then as principal since 2015. Mark was an honorable and devoted man. His actions were intentional and thoughtful, and he knew how to make each moment meaningful through small but heartfelt gestures. It was never too late, and he was never too tired or too busy for those he loved.
