The Gene Daniels Memorial Scholarship Committee invites you to participate in the Coach D Memorial Scholarship 5K. All proceeds from this race will go to the Gene Daniels Memorial Scholarship Fund. Gene Daniels, known by many in the Apex community as “Coach D”, had a passion for teaching and coaching in the Wake County Public School System for 24 years. He will be most remembered for his tireless energy, unbelievable work ethic, his servant’s heart and for how much he loved his family. His positive influence on students, athletes, parents, colleagues, and friends will live on in their hearts as the years go by. As he always said to his team, “We are more than a team. We are a family.” The Daniel’s Cup will be awarded each year to the high school with the greatest number of event participants.
