Murphy Races for Student Scholarships
The community came together to attend the Murphy Half Marathon, 10K and 5K at Tom Kimbrough Stadium on May 5. Established in 2010 as a part of Murphy Maize Days, the event has been successful in raising money for local foundations and select charities. After the death of Sergeant Kyle Kucauskas in 2014, a 10K race was added to the event. The Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation is a non-profit raising money for students who are interested in law enforcement or criminal justice as a career.
The day began at 6 a.m. as participants received packets after registration. Plano East Senior High Color Guard was in attendance as the crowd joined in singing the national anthem followed by a short prayer. Three courses took runners throughout Murphy and parts of Parker before heading to the finish line at Tom Kimbrough Stadium. All proceeds benefit the Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation.
