Organizers of the Rachel Cooke Memorial Run on Saturday will donate profits to the Central Texas Chapter of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The run, set for 8 a.m. Saturday at San Gabriel and Rivery Parks in Georgetown, marks the 15th anniversary of the disappearance of Cooke, who vanished while running in Georgetown on Jan. 10, 2002.

The race was organized by the Georgetown Running Club at the request of Cooke’s mother, Janet. It also serves as a reminder to the running community to be aware of your surroundings while running, organizers said.

Entry fee is $25. For more information go here.

Packet pickup is from 6-8 p.m. today at Rentsch Brewery, 2500 NE Inner Loop in Georgetown, and from 7-7:45 a.m. race day.

A portion of sales at Rentsch Brewery after the event will also be donated to the Central Texas Chapter of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
