Sicily's Run will be held in Wellington, KS April 13, 2013. There will be a 5K and a 1/2 Fun Run that will benefit the Sicily Zeka Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year until the year 2023, when Sicily would have graduated, a graduating Wellington High School senior who exemplifies the most important qualities found in the leaders and caregivers in the medical field and research labs around the world, will be awarded a scholarship to support his or her first steps toward a career in medicine. Sicily Zeka battled Wilm's Tumor, pediatric cancer of the kidneys, for 19 months before passing away March 21, 2010, at the age of four.
The 5K will begin at 8:00 am and 1/2 mile fun run at 9:00 am. Races begin at the Knights of Columbus building, 201 East Harvey.
