Brian J. Hom Memorial 1.5 Mile Run/Walk

We welcome you to kick-off Fall Fair and Homecoming at Friends Academy by supporting the 11th Annual Brian Hom Memorial 5K Run/Walk.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Brian James Hom Scholarship.


Established in the spring of 2011, the Brian James Hom Scholarship honors students who embody Brian's qualities and live according to his motto, "I am the me I choose to be." Brian, Class of 2011, left a lasting impact on all who knew him through his passion for social equity and justice, innate generosity and personal warmth, wonderful sense of humor and smile, and unparalleled commitment to excellence as a runner and a scholar. He genuinely respected all people and sought to restore dignity and hope to the world. He inspired everyone he touched.

For those not able to attend in person, you may participate virtually from 9/24 to 10/2

Whether you are participating live at Friends Academy or away from campus, we have set up this webpage to bring our community together both near and far.

We hope to see you on October 1st!
