On December 1, 2007, Chris Brown, one of the area’s finest runners from Bluffton, Indiana, lost his battle with cancer. He was a student at IPFW majoring in Public and Environmental Affairs and was a member of the IPFW Cross Country and Track programs. In his 23 years, Chris formed many friendships with local runners. In memory of Chris and his commitment to IPFW athletics, friends of Chris wish to raise funds for the Chris Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund at IPFW.
