The Fun Run serves as the primary fundraiser for the Marianne Talley Scholarship Foundation. This non-profit organization was created in 1993 to fund scholarships for college bound athletes graduation from Arroyo Grande High School. The foundation grants three separate scholarships: The Marianne Talley, Oliver Talley and Don Talley Memorial Scholarships which have combined to award over $198,000 to 42 worthy young men and women.
Marianne was an avid athlete who competed in swimming, running, cycling and triathlon events most of her life. She was a member of the SLO Roadrunners Running and Triathlon Club, and competed in the Ironman Triathlon in 1992. She died suddenly on May 18, 1993 from complications associated with heart arrhythmia. The Fun Run was established as an annual fundraising event in 1994 and is dedicated to honoring Marianne’s memory and to her commitment to health, fitness and exercise.
We are always looking for businesses to help sponsor this event. Volunteers the day before and on race day are needed as well. Please contact Marian Fiorentino if interested.
