First Bank is currently accepting applications for the First Bank Fall Run Scholarship. The deadline for submission is Monday, April 25. For a printable application, email 5k10kRun@fbvirginia.com or contact the Lord Botetourt or James River guidance departments.
This year marks the 36th Annual First Bank Fall 5K and 10K to be held in the historic Town of Fincastle on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022. The run has been a staple in the community and brings local school students and communities together in a positive way to promote health, exercise and wellness. Each year since the race’s inception, the bank has presented a scholarship to a student who has participated in and completed at least one fall run event and has been a member of a running sport in high school.
First Bank will award to two $1,000 scholarships, one for a student at James River High School in Buchanan and one for a student at Lord Botetourt High School in Daleville. The student must be a member of the current graduating class of the school and plan to attend an accredited college, university or any accredited post-secondary institution immediately after graduation.
