Matt’s Mile and 5k
Come to Run, Stay for Fun!
Friday, October 3, 2014 5:30PM
Matt was a 13-year-old who loved to run. In the spring of 2008, he ran the Reach out and Run 5k in 22:21. He followed that up in May by taking first in the mile for 5th and 6th Graders in the Catholic Conference Meet with a time of 6:13. Later that fall, he took first in his age group with a time of 21:27 in the Run on the Prairie 5k. It was his last race.
To honor his love of running, we created Matt's Mile and 5k.
Please join us for our 4th year. Bring your friends and neighbors along for a wonderful night of outdoor fun! There will be fresh air, friendly competition and food for everyone! All proceeds will benefit the 12 Oaks Foundation whose mission is to provide grants to families in need to cover the costs of sports and community activities for their kids.
