WHY RUSH RUN?

SYDNEY RUSH
The Annual Rush Run 5K Run/Walk, hosted by the Monongalia County 4-H Teen Leaders, is in memory of our own Sydney Rush. Sydney was a bright star shining on everyone around her. She was an outstanding 4-Her... A true example of "Making The Best Better". Her 4-H family loved her for it! Sydney attended Clay-Batelle High School and was a state track champion and a member of their state championship cheerleading squad, as well as a 4-H member, a Young Life youth, and much more. In September of 2013, she was involved in a fatal car accident on her way home from a youth event. We miss her and in her memory, we host this 5K she would have loved. The Teen Leaders wear pink in Syd's honor, & invite you to join them and put your pink on. 
Proceeds benefit The Sydney Rush Monongalia County 4-H Teen Leader Memorial Fund which helps Mon Co youth continue to enjoy the benefits of 4-H camp by providing four camp scholarships each year. Additional funds will be used for recreation during camp. As the scholarship fund continues to grow, we plan to provide college scholarships as well. 

WHO ARE WE?

MON COUNTY 4-H TEEN LEADERS
The Monongalia County 4-H Teen Leader group is open to any youth aged 13-21 who are interested in taking a leadership role in various activities throughout the county.  

The Teen Leaders decided to host a 5K and fund annual scholarships in their friend Sydney's memory to help Mon County youth attend 4-H camp in the summer. They do other community service projects throughout the year to help others, promote 4-H youth programs by being visible in the county, and plan social activities to encourage a healthy lifestyle. 

The Teen Leaders meet every third Thursday at 6:00pm at the Extension Office. If you would like additional information regarding Teen Leaders, please contact
