The $6,991 raised from Saturday’s event will be used for the Allyson Wilgar-Jones Memorial Scholarship, which is awarded based on need and merit to Penn College associate- or bachelor-degree nursing students. T-shirts from the walk/run still are available for sale (sizes small to extra large) at $10 each.
