In memory of Tallahassee teen Lawson Mayfield, who passed suddenly from bacterial meningitis, The Lawson Mayfield Memorial Foundation will be holding its third annual Run For Lawson benefit run on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 on the campus of Holy Comforter Episcopal School and Welaunee Plantation grounds. The run events include a One Mile Fun Run as well as a 5k and 10k race. Proceeds from the event will benefit National Meningitis Association {NMA} and contribute to raising local awareness about bacterial meningitis prevention.

With the help of more than 2,000 registered walkers and runners and an army of sponsors, inkind supporters and volunteers, Run For Lawson has raised more than $70,000 for the NMA over the past two years.

The One Mile Fun Run will begin at 8 a.m., with the 5k and 10k races following at 8:30 a.m. The chip-timed run is open to participants of all skill levels and will take place on an unspoiled cross-country course through pristine greenery. Awards will be given in overall and age group categories. The pre-registration fee is $20 on or before September 26th and $25 through the day of the race. Registration for the One Mile Fun Run is $15 on or before September 27th and $20 through the day of the race.
