The 2014 race takes place Saturday, September 20th at 8am.
Forrest Arthur Ray was a beloved husband,
family man, teacher, musician and tireless library supporter.
He originated the idea of a 5k to help raise money to expand
and renovate the Downtown and Wesmark branches of the Sumter County Library System.
Forrest passed away after the first 5k held in 2006, and the
event was named in his memory and honor in appreciation for his
work on behalf of the Sumter County Library and its mission to
serve all members of the community, especially its youngest.
