Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce Donates $1,400 to CASD Foundation

The Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) Foundation recently received $1,400 raised from the 18th Annual Tim and Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race hosted by the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce on July 9.

Nearly 100 runners participated in the race, which paid tribute to the memories of Tim and Susan Cook, who died tragically in a car accident in 2002. Tim and Susan Cook were dedicated to education; Tim taught at Chambersburg Area Senior High School and Susan worked at Shippensburg University.

The race is well-attended by runners in the area with Coach Chris Monheim assisting with promotions and coordinating the race logistics. Funds raised for the Cook Race are donated to the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to Chambersburg Area Senior High School students who model the characteristics exemplified by the Cooks.

“It is an honor for us to uphold the legacy of Tim and Susan Cook by hosting this community race; we were happy to see runners of all ages participate during the week of ChambersFest,” said Angela Schaeffer, director of operations of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce.

The CASD Foundation receives donations for the Tim and Susan Cook Scholarship Fund throughout the year from individuals, alumni, CASHS faculty committees, booster clubs and various community organizations. If you would like more information about donating to this scholarship, please contact Angela Lynch at

The Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce works with the Chambersburg Road Runners Club to present the Tim & Susan Cook Memorial One-Mile Race every year as part of ChambersFest. The Chamber would like to thank the participants and sponsors for their continued support and ensuring this fundraiser was a great success. For more information, visit
