The Tom Schlegel Memorial 5k Run

The family and friends of Tom Schlegel would like to ask you to join us for the 11th annual Tom Schlegel Memorial 5K road race on September 17th, 2017. One of Neuqua Valley’s most inspiring staff members, Tom Schlegel passed away on October 13th, 2006, after fighting a year long battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As a former physical education teacher and assistant football coach, he has impacted the lives of many over the years. Defined by his faith, love, and character, Tom was a humble man always putting others before himself and never taking recognition for anything. A loving husband, dedicated father, approachable teacher, a motivating coach, and loyal friend, Tom simply lived life “the way everyone should.”
