The third annual Jimmy Williams Memorial Run will be held Saturday, May 7 this year at Willow Metro Park in New Boston.
The 5K run and walk is held in honor of Jimmy Williams, an honor student and exceptional football player at Huron High School who died in a car crash on Nov. 18, 2012 while he was traveling with his family through South Carolina on vacation.

A separate panel will rate the applicants who will receive the scholarship.
The paved course winds runners and walkers through scenic Willow Metro Park and along the Huron River.
The race begins at 10 a.m. near the pool/amphitheater area, with an awards ceremony immediately following at 11 a.m.
