Jen Phyle was a vibrant, energetic, and inspirational woman, who had the ability to make anyone that met her feel like family. Her captivating smile and fervor for life was a driving force, which could be seen through her interactions with friends, community members and her family. In her 46 years on this earth, she touched many lives and created a legacy that will continue with her three amazing sons, Nick, Justin and Ryan, and her loving husband John.
On November 11th, we will be honoring Jen by running the Clarkston Backroads Half Marathon/10K/5K together as Team Jen. We are inviting anyone that would like to participate as a part of Team Jen to partake by registering for one of the three races, as well as purchasing a Team Jen running shirt, which has been created to honor the legacy that she left. All proceeds from running shirt sales will go directly to the Jen Phyle Scholarship, which was established, by Clarkston High School in coordination with the Clarkston Foundation, to honor Jen’s passion for life and her legacy.
Beyond the proceeds raised from t-shirt sales, we also wanted a place for people to donate to the Smile Like Jen Phyle Scholarship. This scholarship will be given to a Clarkston High School senior this year, and it's our hope to continue this scholarship for years to come to continue to honor the memory and legacy of Jen Phyle.
