David Hutton Memorial 5k run & 2 mile walk



4th Annual David Hutton Memorial 5k
Run and 2 Mile Walk

Saturday August 15th 2009,
Cameron County High School,
Emporium, Pa 15834


The David Hutton Memorial 5k Run & 2 Mile
walk Scholarship race is put on by David’s
family and friends. We also get help from
other local race directors and the
Elk County Striders

The course is a good combination of flats and rolling
hills thru the streets of Emporium. Race finishes at
the high school track. Register on race day at the
Cameron County High School cafeteria until 8:45 a.m.
Rain or shine, no refunds.
All proceeds from the race/ walk will benefit the
David Hutton Track Scholarship Fund. The fund
was established after David passed away following
an automobile accident in Sept. 2005.

An annual financial award is presented to a Cameron
County senior who exemplifies similar high academic
achievement and is also a member of the track team
as David was. We would graciously accept any
donations to the scholarship fund. Make your check
out to the "David Hutton Track Scholarship." Thank
you for your contribution. David was also a member
of the Elk County Striders.
2009 Scholarship Recipient: Randy Schatz
2008 Scholarship Recipients: Vickie Lippert, Steven Singer

David was a high school and collegiate track and field
athlete. During his high school career he competed in
many local 5k road races and was a state qualifier in
the 800 meters. He continued his running career at
Duquesne University where he competed in track and
field for four years.

Following his graduation from his bachelors he continued
to run during graduate school and would make the trip
up from Pittsburgh to contribute to the local races he had
come accustomed to. He loved to run and would do the
best he could to fit running into his hectic life.

Before his passing he had earned a bachelors of science
in Athletic Training from Duquesne University in 2002,
his Masters in Education from the University of Pittsburgh
in Exercise Physiology and was also pursuing a PhD from
the University of Pittsburgh. He had worked with many
organizations in the around Pittsburgh including UPMC,
Three Rivers Fitness, and his favorite place Locke’s
Fitness Studio.

David strove to improve the health and wellbeing of others.
We hope to carry on his work by encouraging individuals
of all ages to become active in fitness, improve their overall
wellness, and to most importantly have fun along the way
