The 7th annual Nicholas Fillinger Memorial Run will be held on July 18, 2020 on the beautiful campus of St. Bernard Prep School in Cullman, Alabama.  Nicholas died tragically in a training accident in September 2013.  St. Bernard was one of his favorite places to run.

The run benefits the Nicholas Fillinger Foundation.  The Nicholas Fillinger Foundation ministers to orphans and children rescued from human trafficking.  This year's proceeds will help the "Not Forgotten" orphanage in Iquitos, Peru which has been hit particularly hard by COVID-19.  It also ministers locally in educating young athletes about safe and healthy training techniques, and provides a scholarship to a graduating senior who is pursuing higher education.
