Virginia's Run commemorates Montgomery student

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Residents commemorate a Montgomery student's life by participating in a 5-K and one mile run.

Virginia Jacks was killed in a car crash following last year's Auburn-Clemson football game on September 18, 2010.

Jacks was a student at Eastwood Christian School in Montgomery and the school hosted "Virginia's Run" in her honor.

The run helps generate funds to support the construction of a new gymnasium.

Funds from the event will also go toward scholarships for Eastwood students seeking jobs in faith-based careers and mission work.
