Proceeds benefit the Fletcher Foundation

Emily Fletcher grew up in Auburn and attended Edward Little High School. She was a standout runner in cross-country and track. In December 2004, at age 21, Emily’s life was tragically taken in a car accident. In her memory and spirit, the Emily Fletcher Memorial 5K (Emily’s Run) was established to both celebrate her life and raise funds for two college scholarships in her name as well as donations to the Auburn Public Library, the Auburn Nordic Ski Association, and the Androscoggin Land Trust.
