For those of you who don't know this is a memorial to my friend who passed very suddenly of a brain aneurysm on June 25, 2013. Nick graduated from PMHS and was a Middle School Art teacher, College Art Professor, and Metal Smith in Wilmington, NC. He loved music, his dogs, anything outdoors, and was an all around great guy. My friends and I are all still kind of in shock that he is gone and want to do something to keep his memory alive. It is a shame he was taken from this world so soon. If you are in the area and have some time to knock out a 3.1 route please join us on April 28th. All proceeds go to the Nick Mowers Memorial Scholarship and the funding of the Nick Mowers Memorial Dog Park.
