The Bay Head 5k Memory Run was created by The Kate Shea Foundation. KSF was founded by loving friends and family of Kate Shea in order to give back to the community she called home most summers of her short, but fulfilling life. Kate was an inspiration to us all in the way she lived her life in an accepting and open-minded way. The proceeds from the Bay Head 5K will go to The Kate Shea Foundation to support its mission of providing funds to research organizations fighting cancers and youth education.
