We hope we can comeback on 2022 with our in person event.

If you register for the in person event, you don't need to do anything we will transfer your registration to the virtual 5k.

The Chris Hixon Memorial 5k, will honor the memory of Chris Hixon; a friend, Coach,Father and great human being. All proceeds will support the Chris Hixon Athletic Scholarship foundation.

Christopher Hixon was a victim of the Majory Stoneman Douglas High School during the tragic events that took place on February 14, 2018. He was gunned down while running towards the shooter in order to stop him from taking more innocent lives and despite his wounds continued to stand guard, until police arrived, after the shooter had departed in case he returned. Chris was an Athletic Director, Coach, and Campus Monitor during 20+ year career within the Broward County Public Schools of Blanche Ely High School, South Broward High School, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Additionally, Chris Hixon was a retired U.S. Navy Machinist Mate First Class having served 27 honorable years, 5 active duty and 22 reserve, in support of our nation. His love for his student-athletes was well known throughout his career as he always went the extra mile to ensure they were taken care of. Therefore, to continue his legacy and continue to take care of student-athletes we created a scholarship in his name for student-athletes at the three schools he worked at.
