The Auburn High School Student Leadership Team presents its first annual “Run for a Rocket”, a 5K run/walk event to be held on April 3rd, 2016  (rain date April 10th).

This event will consist of a 5K run/walk over our cross country course with Auburn colors being thrown at the runners at several stations throughout the course.  It is the organizers’ goal to make this an annual event to help someone in town that is in need of funds/scholarship.

This year’s honoree and recipient of proceeds will go to Nikki Berthiaume, AHS Class of 2013. While at Auburn, Nikki participated in softball, golf, winter track, and was a manager for the football team for 3 years.

On May 30, 2015 Nikki and some friends found themselves enjoying a day on Boston Harbor.  Nikki was in the water swimming back towards the boat when she was critically injured by the boat propeller. Her right arm was severed, her left arm badly injured, her abdomen severely lacerated.  She suffered a laceration on her head as well as on multiple other areas across her body.

The road to recovery is a long one, with much work to do both physically & emotionally.

The run will be held on the cross country course at Lemansky Park in Auburn. Registration is from 9:00am–10:30am.  Run begins at 11:00am.
