This event is named in memory of David Milson, long-time head coach of the Cedar Hill High School basketball team, who twice took his team to the Class 5A state title game. Coach Milson succumbed to lung cancer in 2011, despite being a non-smoker. While David’s achievements as a basketball coach were numerous, his true legacy will be the contributions he made as a teacher, friend and family man.
All proceeds from The David Milson Legacy Run go to Cedar Hill Lions Club Charities, Inc., a 501(c)3 corporation affiliated with the Cedar Hill Lions Club.
