On May 25, 2019, the Gridz of East Northport will once again become the home of the Cpl Christopher G. Scherer Memorial “I DID THE GRID” 4 Mile Run / Walk. Beginning at Pulaski Elementary School, runners and walkers will round the course’s 31 turns with the names of four fallen service members on their bibs.
On this day, runners relinquish their personal awards for something bigger than themselves. With each step they run or walk, they honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country. With their help, Team Chris continues to Honor the Fallen and Support the Troops!
Our mission is to aid our active military, honor the fallen members of our military and give back to the community of Northport-East Northport through student scholarships and support of educational and youth programs whose mission is to instill in our youth the values of honor, courage, commitment, loyalty and teamwork, traits that Chris exemplified while serving his country in the United States Marine Corps.
We are extremely proud of our community and grateful for all the generosity and support we have been given over the years since Christopher’s death. We hope that by “paying it forward” to our active military, veterans and community we are continuing Christopher’s legacy of service to his community and country.
In loving memory of Cpl Christopher G. Scherer, USMC
