We are pleased to once again host the Tracey Yeager Memorial 5K Run/Walk on Memorial Day 2015.  Our goal is to continue to hold a family friendly event and to allow participants and spectators an opportunity to celebrate this day in remembrance of those who died in service of our country. 
 
 
 In 2014, the event raised over $37k for this event and once again went into the Tracey’s Trails Fund at the Kosciusko Community Foundation.  This is a non-permanent fund, meaning that all proceeds can be paid out for the cause.  The fund will be used to aid in the continued development of the walking and cycling trails in Kosciusko County.
