Cody's Story

The Cody G Richardson Memorial Scholarship Foundation was established in honor of Cody Glen Richardson, a 2011 graduate of Perryville High School in Perryville, Maryland. Cody was an accomplished Track and Field Athlete, winning the Maryland State 1A title in the 300 m hurdles event while placing in the top 5 in the 110m high hurdles and the 4x400m relay.

Cody had high hopes to continue his track and field career at the college level. He was a dedicated and fun and loving son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend to so many. He lived life to the fullest and overcame challenges to become the best he could be. Cody passed away tragically in July 2011 at the age of 18 in an automobile accident.

The Foundation and the CGR Relentless Run Committee is comprised of Cody’s family and friends. Our vision is to raise funds for the Cody G Richardson Memorial Scholarship Fund which provides multiple scholarships to local Harford and Cecil County High School Seniors pursuing a college career and athletics each year. These students portray the person who Cody was, helping his spirit live on. It is an award that is not solely based on academic achievement; rather, it will be given to a student who symbolizes Cody's strong morals, athleticism, principles, and values. We hope that your participation and donations will help the Foundation grow in order to help high school students further their education and life experience. We believe that by organizing this event and assisting these young adults, we will be honoring Cody and carrying on his legacy in a very positive way. We are extremely grateful for your interest and support in this memorial effort.

Donations are accepted in lieu of or in addition to registration for the event.

Please make your tax deductible donation payable to:
The Cody G Richardson Memorial Fund PO Box 853 Perryville, MD 21903 


We look forward to your participation and are very excited to have you support the cause!!
