ABOUT RUN 4 BEIGEL
FOR THE KIDS IN MEMORY OF SCOTT
RUN 4 BEIGEL is a bi-annual event celebrating the life and impact of Scott J. Beigel, beloved teacher, cross-country coach and summer-camp counselor. Funds raised through RUN 4 BEIGEL events support the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund, whose mission and purpose is to send at-risk, underserved kids touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp. Every entry, sponsor and donor is a valued partner to RUN 4 BEIGEL as we race to remember Scott and change the world for children in need.
Meet Coach Scott J. Beigel
Scott Beigel was a teacher. A cross-country coach. A counselor. A son. A brother. An uncle. A grandchild. A nephew. A cousin. A friend. He died a hero for his actions at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where he taught geography and coached cross-country. In the wake of the tragedy at MSD, as the Parkland community mourned the devastation of so many lives lost and affected, Scott's cross-country team quickly mobilized a 5k race in honor of their beloved coach and mentor. As the years pass, this race has become an event uniting the Parkland community and beyond in remembrance and celebration of Scott and all of those affected.
The mission and purpose of the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund is to send at-risk, underserved children touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp.
Scott loved working with children and teaching afforded him the ability to continue with one of his greatest passions, working at summer sleep-away camp. The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund keeps Scott's legacy of giving back to the kids alive and growing. Through fundraising efforts, event participants, sponsors and private donors, The Fund sends at-risk children to summer sleep-away camp year after year, increasing the number of supported children annually.
In 2023, The Fund presented $378,000 in grants to 7 summer sleep-away camps, funding camperships for 262 children.
