Gary Mintz was the Principal of Brentwood High School from 1989 until his sudden death in 1995. Together with Mr. O'Brien, his successor, Mintz developed the concept of a community 5k to take place on the morning of the scholarship pancake breakfast annually held in December.

This endeavor is the largest fundraising scholarship event for graduating seniors at Brentwood. Supporting this event assists students in offsetting their college expenses, and provides the incentive many students need to make college a reality.
