Character Counts 5k
Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to join the Character Counts 5K and Fun Runin honor of Lower Merion High School’s beloved late principal, Dr. Sean Hughes. All of the race proceeds will benefit the Sean A. Hughes Memorial Garden and Plaza planned for the Lower Merion High School campus. The Garden design includes a unique gateway to campus reflecting both the physical image of Dr. Hughes and the tenets of his oft-stated motto that “Character Counts.” As ninth-grade students “Enter to Learn” and 12th-grade students “Go Forth to Serve,” they will pass through this gateway and into an outdoor plaza intended for learning, mindfulness, and growth.
