The Run for Carly Rae 5K Run & 1 Mile Run/Walk was established to honor the life of Carly Rae Baron, who tragically lost her life to gun violence in 2020. Carly Rae was a beautiful person, who enjoyed basketball, modeling and spending time with her family and friends.
Carly Rae was a graduate of Eugene Ashley High school and good friends with current Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Alex Highsmith. The Alex Highsmith Family Foundation wanted to create a scholarship that would help keep Carly Rae's memory alive for years to come. With the blessings of the Baron Family, the scholarship program began in 2023.
