New for 2012 ~ Coach Beiter Memorial Cup and Scholarship Fund
Daric Beiter was the head track and cross country coach at Davie County High School from 2001-2011, taught social studies, was the department chair and named Teacher of the Year in 2010. He was a loving husband, a friend to all, and a long time supporter of the Shamrock Run. Daric sadly passed away last spring on his 37th birthday.
As Coach Beiter inspired countless student athletes throughout his career, we will be presenting the First Annual Coach Beiter Memorial Cup! Each year the names of the top male and female finisher from Davie County High School will be engraved and the cup will be on display at the High School.
The Shamrock Run is also supporting the Daric Beiter Memorial Scholarship Fund and asking race participants to add a dollar or more to their registration fee for an additional Scholarship donation.
