Run Honors Wilson Cross Country Coach

Wilson High School will present the First Annual Jim Arquilla 5K Run at 8 a.m. Saturday, August 23, at the high school, 4400 E. 10th St. The run honors Arquilla, a Wilson cross country coach since 1986 who died from melanoma cancer in May. The money raised will go to the American Cancer Society, the Jim Arquilla Scholarship Fund, a memorial bench in Arquilla’s honor and the Wilson cross country program. One of Arquilla’s final wishes was to create an annual scholarship fund for a male and female cross country runner at Wilson. The entry fee is $5 for high school runners and $10 for all others. Each participant will receive a T-shirt. For more information, call 421-5860.
