Dedication

Our 2.8 Family Walk and Jog is named for our Aunt Jean Dixon, whom we liked to call "everybody's favorite aunt."

She was Andy's most loyal volunteer from the day he opened the store to the day she went to heaven. Aunt Jean headed up the food table for decades, serving up big smiles along with the tasty treats.

 

The older sister of Pat Stewart (Andy, Steve and Lyn's mom), Aunt Jean was a second mother to the siblings.  She not only brought tons of joy, her witty and vibrant personality plus positive energy resulted in instant friends.

Aunt Jean passed away in 2018 at 90 years young.

Dedication

Andy Stewart started the Sugar Land Turkey Trot in 1985, shortly after he opened Finish Line Sports. It became an annual Thanksgiving Day tradition for many families and grew every year.

When Andy passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 9, 2021, his beloved running community wanted to hold the 2021 Turkey Trot in his honor. It was huge turnout and a beautiful tribute to all Andy had done for the running community and supporting charities for decades.  The Turkey Trot was always Andy's favorite race.

Andy’s family (his wife, Jean; daughter, Caitlin; brother, Steve; and sister, Lyn) want to continue the Sugar Land Turkey Trot not only in Andy’s honor, but to continue supporting all the charities he loved and was committed to for many years.

Our Kids' Mile is named in memory of Sean Scroggins.

 

Sean placed in the Kids' Mile when he was 9 years old, but was diagnosed with leukemia soon after.

 

Sean's mom and brother were often cheerleaders at the annual event, to help honor his memory.
