_ The 2022 5K for Kelsey:
The 5K for Kelsey Fun Run was created in honor of Kelsey Nalepa who was 8 years old when she was killed in a car accident involving a drunk driver. We want to bring awareness to the impacts of drinking and driving while raising funds for the Kelsey Nalepa Scholarship.
Come join us for a noncompetitive fun run, food trucks, silent auction, children's activities, and more!
