Slideshow: Saint Francis Xavier Run at the Rock

Saint Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Gettysburg, held its 10th annual Noreen Neitz Memorial Run at the Rock on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The 5K, 10K and 1-mile run are held in memory of Noreen Neitz, former parish youth minister. Neitz passed away on July 10, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. The Run at the Rock takes its name from Noreen’s invitation for youth to “join us at the rock” for activities at the parish campus on Table Rock Road.
