Paul E. Riddle, Jr. (1957-2008)
The 2008 Gibson Guitar 5K Run-Walk for St. Patrick Learning Center, Inc. was run in memory of Paul E. Riddle, Jr. on Friday evening, June 13, 2008 in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. Paul helped start the charity 5K run in our inaugural year of 1997 and helped cultivate the Gibson Guitar 5K to its current status as one of the marquis events on the Memphis/Mid-South running calendar. The run benefits St. Patrick Learning Center, Inc., a 501 © 3 Non-Profit agency that serves children and families in 38126, Memphis' lowest income zip code and one of the poorest in the U.S. Thanks to Paul's contacts and engaging personality, one of his former employers became a key sponsor of our 5K. In addition, Paul helped St. Patrick Learning Center by delivering Meals-on-Wheels to the impoverished neighborhood the center strives to serve.
If you wish, you may make a tax deductible gift in Paul's memory to St. Patrick Learning Center, Inc, 277 S. 4th Street, Memphis, TN 38126. Your gift will be recognized during our 5K ceremonies this year and will carry forward Paul's legacy of service to those who have the least.
