CHAMBERSBURG, PA – The Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) Foundation recently received $1,500 raised from the 15th Annual Tim and Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race hosted by the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce on July 14.
 
This year, more than 100 runners participated in the race that honors the memories of Tim and Susan Cook, who died tragically in a car accident in 2002. Tim and Susan Cook were dedicated to education; Tim taught at Chambersburg Area Senior High School and Susan worked at Shippensburg University.
Proceeds from the Cook Race are donated to the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to Chambersburg Area Senior High School students who model the characteristics exemplified by the Cooks.

“We are honored to support the Tim & Susan Cook scholarships by hosting this race; the Cooks were committed to continued education for high school students, and we are proud to uphold their legacy,” said Stephen Christian, president of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce.
 
The CASD Foundation receives donations for the Tim and Susan Cook Scholarship throughout the year from individuals, alumni, CASHS faculty committees, booster clubs and various community organizations. If you would like more information about donating to this scholarship, please contact Angela Lynch at angela.lynch@casdonline.org or 717-552-6492.
 
The Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce works with Chambersburg Road Runners Club to present the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race every year as part of ChambersFest. The Chamber would like to thank the participants and sponsors for their continued support and ensuring this fundraiser was a great success. For more information, visit Chambersburg.org.
