Thank You to all who participated in the
14th Annual Labor Day Memorial 5K Run & Walk on
Monday, September 3, 2018!
This event was established to honor two of West Warwick's finest track and cross-country athletes. Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarship funds established in their memory. Read below for the heart-warming stories of Tom Medeiros and Sgt. Brian St. Germain.
Tommy Medeiros, the youngest of eight children, emigrated to the United States in 1967 from St. Michael, Azores, Portugal. At an early age his family realized that he wasn't interested in baseball, basketball, or even soccer. It became clear that Tommy had a passion for running and the God-given ability to run like the wind! He combined that gift and the strong work ethic instilled by his family to become one of the greatest runners in West Warwick High School history.
Brian St. Germain
Brian St. Germain, born on July 18 1983, grew up in West Warwick where he attended public school as a smart, skinny kid with glasses. He was active in various youth sports, such as, baseball, basketball, soccer and even jujitsu, and was a real car fanatic! In the eighth grade Brian ran his first cross-country meet for Deering Middle School. Although he finished at the back of the pack, the seed was planted for an award-winning track career.
