Jim Cox, a very active Calumet Region Striders member, was diagnosed with Leukemia in August 1993 and on October 15, 1993 succumbed to the disease at the age of 57 years. Jim’s family started a fund which CRS designated as a scholarship fund and is given to CRS members or their children when they enroll as college freshmen.
The committee will review the applications and determine amounts and the Board will approve at the May Board meeting.
Please keep in mind that the application deadline is April 30th at 11:59PM CDT.
