for Kaylee rescheduled for March 8
The 5K benefit run for Kaylee Helton
that was scheduled to take place in December had to be canceled due
to severe weather. That run has now been rescheduled for Saturday,
March 8, at 2 p.m. at Kickapoo Creek Park.
The benefit run will offer three options. Runners or walkers may
choose to take one lap, which is about 1.55 miles, or two laps,
which would be about 3.1 miles.
There will also be a virtual runner option. Signing up as a
virtual runner means the person will pay the registration fee and
receive a shirt but does not have to walk or run the course.
Currently the online registration for this event has been closed,
but participants may register the day of the race. Shirts
commemorating the event will be offered until supplies run out.
No electronic timing system will be used for this event. The race
will be timed by stopwatch, with volunteers calling out times as
runners cross the finish line.
Refreshments will be available after the race.
All proceeds from the race will go to benefit Kaylee Helton
and her family. Kaylee is a 14-year-old student at Lincoln
Community High School and a graduate of New Holland-Middletown.
Last fall Kaylee was hospitalized in critical condition in St.
Louis with a massive pulmonary embolism that caused heart, lung
and kidney failure.
