The seventh annual "Brian Delp Memorial 5K Run and Walk" will be held at Bluefield State College on Tuesday, September 25, 2012, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The event is designed to raise funds for the "Humanitarian Athletic Award," a scholarship in memory of the late Brian A. Delp, a BSC student-athlete who lost his life while assisting a stranded motorist.
Entry fee is $15, in advance and $20 on the day of the race. Entry fee for walkers is $10 (no late fee). The format includes several age groups, and each participant receives a t-shirt. Additional information can be obtained online by visiting the Bluefield State College home page (bluefieldstate.edu) ,or by contacting Vonda Wilson, BSC Cross Country Coach and Athletic Department Administrative Secretary, at (304) 327-4208/e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org
"Brian was an exceptional person," noted BSC athletic director Terry Brown. "He was a humanitarian, a leader, and an excellent student athlete." The Humanitarian Athletic Award is presented in the form of two $250 scholarships (one award for a male student-athlete and one for a female student-athlete) per academic year. One of the scholarships is funded on an annual basis by local educators Tom and Janie Farmer. Scholarship applicants must be BSC student-athletes, two-year letter winners, and they must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average, according to Brown.
