This is our 3rd annual Jog For Joey 5k Run/Walk. Joey Gardner was a 2016 graduate of EPGHS who passed away suddenly in 2017 from ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia). Joey had an impact on the community before his passing through his humble, kind spirit, and love for all those he encountered. All funds raised from this race support The Joey Gardner Memorial Scholarship Fund.
This is a fundraiser for our high school cross country team to attend a long distance running camp located at University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point.
