Every year I have the opportunity to be a part of this great community event. To honor the life and memory of a special young woman here in my hometown and to bring awareness to a oftentimes silent killer of women, Ovarian Cancer.
The Clifford family have chosen to remember Courtney by honoring local students with “The Courtney Clifford Outstanding Achievement Scholarship” and a big event for the scholarship is the Annual Courtney Clifford Scholarship 5K Walk/Run.
Registration is FREE! (Donations appreciated) All the proceeds from the sales of The commemorative T-shirts and Tanks as well as any donations made go directly to the Scholarship fund.
The goal of the Courtney Clifford Outstanding Achievement Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a deserving senior at Portsmouth High School who is planning to to attend a university/college or their choice. The scholarship will reward a student who best exemplifies Courtney’s achievements and character.
