5K event to benefit Whyte

Posted on Monday, August 4, 2014 at 8:46 am

On Sept. 13 the family of Kari Kroeger will be hosting a “Let’s Kick It!” 5K Run/Walk at the American Legion Hall in Elsberry.

The event will benefit Lindsay [Ogden] Whyte, an Elsberry resident who has been battling ovarian cancer for more than six years.

Kroeger described the event as a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a cause that is very close to many hometown hearts.

Check in for the run/walk will be at 9 a.m. and the event will begin at 10 a.m.

Kroeger said that for those who wish to offer support but are unable to participate there is always the option of making a donation online.

“Just go to our website [kkroeger08.wix.com/letskickit5k] and hit the ‘donate’ tab,” said Kroeger.

Kroeger said that food and beverages will also be available for purchase the day of the race.

Anyone with questions and/or a desire to help sponsor the event can email Kroeger at kkroeger08@yahoo.com or check out the “Let’s Kick It! 5K” Facebook page.
