In Loving Memory - Jennifer Vranizan

Hey Friar Trotters… There are big things afoot in the future of the Friar Trot!

The Friar Trot was founded as a fund raiser for St. Francis school and since its inception was run by Jennifer Vranizan.  As most of you know, sadly Jennifer passed away in June of 2014.  Going forward the Friar Trot is transforming into a memorial run for Jennifer and a fund raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 

With the change of the primary benefactor comes a great deal of additional change.  The good news is; the run will remain in Sherwood but will have a change in location of the Start / Finish as well as upgrades in the entire event.  All of these changes require a great deal of planning and hours of volunteer work.  The bad news is it will take an entire year to reinvent the Friar Trot and we have to take 2016 off.  Work has already begun on the all-new 2017 Friar Trot!  Stay tuned and as we get closer we’ll keep you updated.


Thank you everyone for your support over the years and we’ll see you in 2017!
