Endowed Scholarship at Marshfield High School

The Prefontaine Memorial Run Committee annually awards $1,000 scholarships to Coos County students who have shown dedication to cross country/track & field. We also assist Coos County schools in maintaining their cross country/track & field programs through monetary contributions and supporting the Prefontaine Track Club. The Committee believes that our activities honor the memory and spirit of Pre, who believed in giving back to athletes.

In addition, we have established a permanent, endowed scholarship at Marshfield High School in Pre's name. The endowment has reached a corpus of nearly $20,000, but in this low interest environment the interest accumulation each year is still short of the $1,000 scholarship award. The committee will continue to add to the corpus and with the help of those of you who treasure Pre's memory, we will continue to build the Steve Prefontaine Memorial Scholarship that will award scholarships to deserving Marshfield student-athletes in perpetuity. If you would like to contribute to this endowment, please send your tax deductible contribution to the address listed below.
