This Labor Day marks the 20th anniversary (and final running) of the Run With Carl memorial race for Carl D. Schillig. Carl was only 15 years old when he was hit by a vehicle and killed while participating in a Civil War re-enactment. His parents, along with the Jaycees and now Rotary, hold this race each year as a fundraiser for the Carl Schillig Memorial Scholarship Fund. This is a really fun event for a great cause! There is a 5K run/walk, and 5 mile run for those 13 and over and a 1 mile run, and 1/2 mile fun run for those 12 and younger. Immediately after the race, runners can join the post-race party and awards ceremony. You can register now-race day, but you can only get prizes and awards if you pre-register. Visit their site for more information on how to be part of this special final event.
It's almost time to Run With Carl!
