Description

On Saturday, March 26th the Suffolk County Council of Boy Scouts of America and the Andrew McMorris Foundation will host Andrew’s Top Gun Run to raise the funds for Scholarships and Scouterships.  


In September of 2018, Boy Scout Troop 161 was hiking the Greenbelt Trail when a drunk driver tragically hit them. Several scouts were severely injured; as a result of his injuries, 12 year old Andrew McMorris passed away. The lives of his family, friends, community and fellow scouters were forever changed by his loss.  Andrew McMorris was an incredible, kind, and passionate individual with insurmountable potential for his future. In the wake of this immeasurable tragedy, we choose to step forward and celebrate Andrew life, his 16th birthday, love of aviation and scouting!


As a participant YOU will have the unique opportunity to walk and run the runway in Andrew’s honor.  This is going to be a fast and flat run.  We truly hope that you will consider supporting Andrew’s Top Gun Run 5K


The 5K will be a celebration of Andrew, his 16th birthday, love of aviation and scouting as our participants will have the unique opportunity to run on the runway in Andrew’s Top Run. We hope that you will consider supporting Andrew’s Top Run 5K
