MOUNT PULASKI -- On Saturday, the Mount Pulaski State Trooper Deatherage Memorial 5K Race drew nearly 200 participants from all over Illinois.

A five-man honor flag unit of Illinois state troopers marched in to lead all the participants and onlookers in the Pledge of Allegiance. A prayer followed.

Illinois State Trooper Kyle W. Deatherage was tragically killed in the line of duty on Nov. 26. He had become a state trooper in 2009. He is survived by his wife and two young children. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and spending time with his family, friends and fellow officers.

All proceeds will go toward the Trooper Kyle Deatherage Memorial Fund.

If you would like to make a donation, mail your check to: Kyle Deatherage Memorial Fund, 12455 State
Route 143, Highland, IL 62149.

Mount Pulaski Community Pride was the local organizing agency.
