The 16th annual Captain Gerald F. DeConto, USN, Memorial Scholarship 5-K will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 9:00am beginning at the Stop & Shop Plaza in Jerry’s beloved hometown of Sandwich, MA.

The event will begin, as always, with a brief memorial tribute.

The course is a scenic 3.1 mile route around the Sandwich Marina and beach area finishing back at the Stop & Shop Plaza. Runners and walkers are welcome.

The cost to run is $20.00 for those over 18; $15.00 for those under 18. You can pay by cash or check on the day, or online here. Funds raised will support the Captain Gerald F. DeConto, USN, Memorial Scholarship.

At the time of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon Captain Gerald F. DeConto was in charge of the Navy Command Center and was in direct communication with the Secretary of the Navy coordinating the Navy’s response to the attacks on the world Trade Center. Jerry was a high-spirited, caring person who truly loved life, his friends and his family. He enjoyed many activities, one of which was running, and he enjoyed them most when they were shared with family and friends. It is his family’s hope that through the scholarship fund, Jerry will continue to influence the lives of young people and that his memory and the ideals he believed in will live on.
