The Conor McKenna Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization created to raise money to fund a scholarship to be given to a student at Spring-Ford High School on a yearly basis. The award winner will be a student who has shown tremendous courage and perseverance when faced with some adversity in their life.  The foundation has awarded four scholarships the last three years to courageous graduating students at Spring-Ford High School.


This foundation was started after Conor McKenna passed away on March 5, 2011 at the age of 15 after a 19 month battle with a rare cancer.  He was a sophomore at Spring-Ford High School and loved sports.  He was a left- handed pitcher and played for the school and American Legion teams. He showed such courage during his illness that we want to continue to award a scholarship in his name for as long as the foundation continues to raise money to do so.  Our 6th annual 5K will be held on Saturday, October 22th, 2016 at 9:00 a.m., Spring-Ford High School, Royersford PA to continue our fundraising efforts.

There are many initial costs to hosting such an event. We are searching for sponsors to donate money to assist in these expenditures.


All donors will be recognized on race day via a sponsor board and the company name will be placed on race T-shirts (all donations must be received by September 30th in order to have your Company name on the shirts if the donation is above $100) Please email a company logo to be used for the T-shirt to the e-mail below.
