The Manchester Sculpture Project committee has been working for two years to raise funds to erect three life size bronze sculptures, with Olympian, four time Manchester Road Race winner and Manchester native Joe McCluskey as the first to be honored. His statue will stand across from Highland Park Market along the Road Race route. He is widely regarded as one of Manchester's greatest athletes. The statue is being created by Manchester native, Michael Keropian.
