Mariah's Challenge 5K Set for this Weekend

Posted: Updated:

The inaugural Mariah's Challenge 5-K race and fun run will take place in Butte this weekend.

Mariah's Challenge is an organization which challenges high school students to stay away from drugs and alcohol during their high school career.

Those who complete the challenge are awarded with a scholarship.

The group was created when Mariah McCarthy was struck and killed by a drunk driver years ago in Butte.

Mariah's sister, Jenna McCarthy, is organizing the 5K in honor of her sister and to raise money for Mariah's Challenge.

"It's been exciting and emotional I think because it's in memory of my sister and it's to honor students that uphold the values of Mariah's Challenge," said McCarthy. "So it's exciting and emotional to honor her life."

The race will take place on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Copper Mountain Park.

Registration will begin at noon and will cost $20.
