10th Annual Lucas Pfander Memorial Race

Thank you to all who participated! Pictures from the race can be found on the CJ Alumni Facebook page here


First Report: Hundreds at Chaminade Julienne, and around the world, will remember and honor Lucas Pfander ‘09 during the annual Lucas Pfander Memorial Race on Saturday, August 11.

Participants can register at Roger Glass Stadium - Home of the CJ Eagles beginning at 6 p.m. for the 1-mile youth walk/run and 2-mile adult run. Proceeds from donations and t-shirt sales at the race support the Lucas Pfander Scholarship.

The scholarship is awarded to rising CJ seniors who exemplify the traits of Lucas, who passed away on July 11, 2008. While at CJ, Lucas was an honor student who had completed 150 hours of community service, had perfect attendance, and played a sport (cross country, swimming and volleyball) every season. This year, the recipients of the scholarship are Bea Hawthorn ‘19 and Matthew Reuter ‘19.

Those unable to come to CJ for the race are encouraged to print a race bib and run for Lucas from anywhere. The time and distance does not need to be recorded. Those who “attend” the virtual run can then take a picture and email it to Elaine Bonner, annual giving coordinator, or post it on the CJ alumni Facebook page.
