5K for ADay raises more money than ever for Reinhardt student scholarship

By Erika Neldner

ADay for Reinhardt’s 3rd Annual 5K for ADay brought out the largest crowd in history, dubbing the 2017 event “The Best Year Ever.”

“We are so thankful for everyone who came out and participated, for our sponsors and for our volunteers,” said Dale Morrissey, director of development and external relations for Reinhardt University. “We raised more money than ever with our 5K for our Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University.”

The 2017 5K for ADay brought out more than 300 runners and raised more than $20,000, all of which will go to student scholarships.

ADay for Reinhardt student Madison Gianfala said the scholarship provides a great financial relief for her family, and she loves being at Reinhardt studying in the Price School of Education.

“This scholarship enables me to reach my goal of helping children without getting into debt,” she said. “Thank you to everyone who participates in these great events like 5K for ADay. ADay for Reinhardt affords students like me a chance at a quality education.”

ADay for Reinhardt is a scholarship program formed in the 1980s to benefit Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University. The program was expanded this year into Pickens County, and current Reinhardt business student Amberle Godfrey, of the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce, chairs the advisory committee.
