Sean’s Run Weekend began in 2002 to honor Sean Patrick French who was killed as a passenger in an alcohol-related accident.
Proceeds from the weekend provide scholarships to area high school students as well as funding programs to teach youngsters about the dangers of alcohol and to promote wearing seatbelts. The weekend typically attracts over 1,000 participants.
