Area children, students take  mark at McKenzie’s Run
Ortega resident Cameron Perry Walker, Lindsay Turnbach and Summer Schreiner participated in McKenzie's Run.

The Third Annual McKenzie’s Run was a highlight of November, bringing scores of runners and students to EverBank field for a fun morning of health and exercise. This year’s race captain was Jaguars Quarterback Blaine Gabbert. The run honors Bolles student McKenzie Noelle Wilson, who passed away in 2010, and raised funds for The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation. The foundation’s mission is “to help young people recognize their full potential by providing programs that encourage caring for others, giving to those in need and growing in their own spiritually.” This year the race took on added dimension as many race participants remembered 10-year-old Bolles student Ryan Perry during the event. Students who were “running for Ryan” during the race donned green shirts in honor of Perry, who died in an accident this fall.
