About the Run
The run was started by a group of Loyola alumni and friends in 1994 to honor Billy Korrow, who passed away in 1993 as a seventh grader here at Loyola. Billy was the son of longtime Loyola faculty member Mr. Bill Korrow. Subsequently, a sholarship fund was founded in 1998 to carry on Billy's legacy, and this annual race is the largest fundraising component for the scholarship, which is given to a rising seventh grader and a rising ninth grader who are academically gifted and show the spirit that Billy had in his time at Loyola. A total of 43 students have received this scholarship. This event is very popular among our community, and it draws a big crowd every year from current students to faculty, staff, alumni, and families past and present.
