Rembert Memorial Enrichment Program and be used to assist local elementary school children in attending local camps and extracurricular activities.

Cost to participate is $25 in advance and $32 on race day for adults, and $11 in advance and $15 on race day for children. Participants can sign up, and donations can be made at www.tristateracer.com.

Rembert started the Johnathan Goddard Endowment Scholarship for his former Marshall teammate who passed away in a motorcycle accident a few years ago.
