Michelle Walters memorial 5K Saturday
McCOOK, Neb. -- A 5K memorial run/walk is planned for Saturday, Aug. 13, in McCook in memory of Michelle Walters, who had a passion for fitness and an active lifestyle.
The run/walk will take place Saturday at 9 a.m., starting at the Kelley Park lower shelter house in McCook. The course will follow the walking trail and streets around Kelley Park.
There is no registration required and the run/walk is free, although donations toward memorials in Michelle's name will be accepted.
Michelle was killed Sunday during a biking accident at the Boulder Ironman triathlon. Her family is hosting the memorial 5K because they knew that Michelle had not only a passion for running, but also a desire for others to become active. They encourage those who knew and loved Michelle to come out Saturday morning to remember her and her life, as well as those who may not have known Michelle but have the same desire to get active.
The event is coordinated by the Republican River Fitness Series, which Michelle was an active participant and volunteer. For more information about the memorial 5K, please contact Ronda Graff at (308) 340-3412.
