Scott Burgess 5K to be held this weekend

It’s been six years since 32-year-old U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Scott Burgess gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Afghanistan, leaving behind two young daughters and his wife.

At the time, the community of Franklin rallied to support the Franklin High School graduate’s family. Three years later, Burgess’ sister-in-law, Emily Tucker, organized the first of what has become an annual event: The SSG Scott Burgess Memorial 5K.

The 10-year Army veteran will be remembered at the event this Saturday, April 8, at the Franklin Ranch Community Park, located at 2925 FM 46 in Franklin.
