The Sixteenth Annual Run for Aaron will benefit the:

Aaron Ploch Memorial Swimming and Soccer Scholarship.

 This scholarship is given out in memory of Aaron Charles Ploch.  Aaron was an active and loving young boy who passed away suddenly in 1999 at the age of 10.  This scholarship is given with the purpose of honoring Aaron’s love of sports and his devotion to his family and friends.
