Ed Shepard Memorial
3rd Annual 5K Run
Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.
Kid's K at 8:00 a.m.

Ed Shepard in 1940 after winning the Portland Boy's Club victory.The Ed Shepard Memorial 5K run proceeds will be given to benefit the Gorham D.A.R.E. program.

The DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is designed to be a collaborative effort between the police department, schools and parents in our community to encourage the youth to make good choices when dealing with peer pressure and difficult decision making situations. The curriculum is taught to fifth grade students by a police officer in the schools during various times throughout the school year. The curriculum meets several learning results that coincide with the health, writing and social interaction needs for the students.

The curriculum material such as workbooks, school supplies, certificates and DARE T-shirts to help teach the program is costly. We also help support other projects and activities for students when the need is there to encourage kids to make safe and healthy choices with their life to be a positive member of society.

At the end of the year, each student gets a DARE T-Shirt, certificate, and a DARE I.D. Card as part of completing the course. We also celebrate at the end of the year with a DARE Barbeque for all fifth grade students.

Prizes are awarded to top 3 Overall Male and Female. A cash awards are 1st- $100, 2nd - $75, 3rd - $50.
