The Tabor Challenge was created to honor the memory of a student at Grover Cleveland High School, Thomas Cameron. Thomas was a beloved figure in the local area, and there was a lot of sadness when his helicopter went down during a Coast Guard training mission. The proceeds of the run go to funding scholorships for youth at Cleveland High who best possess the virtues that Thomas found important – education, athletics, and commodoire. The race is put on by four friends who grew up with Thomas. They were all raised in SE Portland and would do just about anything for their community.Dogs are allowed, and this year there will be a special route for strollers (a huge plus for a dad like me). The course is still TBD, but it will be a 5k and (obviously) hilly.
Beer from Uptown Market and pizza from Pizza Roma will be providing delicious post-race refueling. Additionally, there will be we will be an after-party that evening at Migration Brewing. Follow the event on Facebook.
