ARE YOU COUNTRY STRONG?
Three challenging race lengths: 5K, 10K and 8 miles ~ all in the country with beautiful scenery and to test your strength.
You will be rewarded with beer, bananas and donuts! All proceeds to benefit St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
This 5K & 10K run goes along the beautiful Eureka Lake and through the nature trails. The 5K and 10K run starts at 7:30am and the 2 mile walk starts at 8:45am. This event benefits Heart House, a shelter for women and children who are homeless or domestic violence victims.
The Robin Vogel 5K run/walk is being held to honor and remember Officer Robin Vogel. Robin was a Decatur, IL police officer who was killed in the line of duty. Robin’s patrol vehicle was struck by a drunk driver on 10/1/05. Two days later on 10/3/05 she succumbed to her injuries suffered in the accident. The money raised from this event will go towards a scholarship in Robins name that will be given to a high school senior in the Decatur/Macon County area. Also, a portion of the money raised will be donated to the National Law Enforcement Fallen Officers Fund in Washington DC.
