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. An endowment of at least $20,000 is required to fund an annual scholarship of at least $1,000. The committee will contribute, but we wouldn't be able to reach this amount for several years since we will continue supporting high school cross country/track & field programs in Coos County, as well as the county-wide scholarships. With the help of those of you who treasure Pre's memory, we can establish the Steve Prefontaine Memorial Scholarship in a much shorter period of time. If you would like to contribute to this endowment, please send your tax deductible contribution to the address listed below or submit your donation online with your Visa or MasterCard.
