5k raises $3K:Airman's son's scholarship started

177th Fighter Wing's First Annual Jack Green 5K Run

More than 154 runners plus a group of volunteers gathered for the 177th Fighter Wing's First Annual Jack Green 5K Run/Walk on Oct. 21. The event was held in memory of Master Sgt. Jack Green, a 26-year veteran assigned to the Avionics shop and his stepdaughter Alexa who were killed in an accident on Jan. 16. Proceeds from the Run will go to a special scholarship fund for Jack’s son Jake. After receiving a shadowbox of Jack’s medals, Lori Green and son Jake started the race. Cruising in first was Liam Dingman, son of Tech. Sgt. William Dingman, with a time of 19 minutes, 20 seconds. First place for women went to Capt. Yvonne Mays with a time of 24 minutes, 21 seconds. The final tally was close to $3,000. Photo by Tech. Sgt. Mark Olsen, 177FW/PA.
