Braswell run against teen violence is Sept. 22
The 7th annual Baron “Deuce” P. Braswell Run Against Teen Violence will be held on Sept. 22 this year.
Registration is now open for the event, which includes a 5K race and a 1-mile fun run for youth aged 14 and under.
The event honors the life of Baron Braswell, a 16-year-old student-athlete at Courtland High School who was killed in January 2006 in an act of teen violence.
Proceeds from the event go toward a memorial scholarship fund that benefits college-bound seniors graduating from public schools in the city of Fredericksburg and counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford, King George and Caroline.
