Christopher “Bub” Ream 5k
May 13, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm
The Christopher ‘Bub” Ream non-competitive 5K walk will take place Saturday, May 13th, beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Somerset School Athletic Field Parking lot on South Franklin Avenue. Walkers are welcome to bring their dogs to join in the festivities.
Proceeds from the event will go toward the Christopher “Bub” Ream Memorial Scholarship, which was established by Christopher’s family to honor his life.
Christopher was 20-years old when he suddenly passed away in 2011. The Somerset Borough native was active in his high school, enjoyed football, and loved to write. He was known as the “gentle giant,” according to his mom.
The fund created in his name provides two annual scholarships for Somerset Area High School senior football players and also provides for other areas of community support.
This is the second year in a row organizers have held the 5k, which took the place of a charity golf tournament. Christopher’s mom, Pam Ream, says, “Doing a benefit every year helps us. It’s a way for us to remember Christopher and share his passion for life with others. Never take anything for granted. I’m glad I was always able to tell Christopher I loved him every day.”
