The 16th Annual Grasshopper 5k Run/Walk is in memory of Dan Biddle, Tracy Tahy and Bryan Windom. The funds will benefit Lakota High School student athletes with their college expenses and raise money for the Lakota Cross Country Memorial Scholarship.
This race is also known as the Lakota Alumni Run/Walk. The Grasshopper 5k is a flat, fast and on all GRASS race while finishing on an all weather track. Long spikes are prohibited.
Your contributions will support the Lakota Cross Country Memorial Scholarship Fund which was started in 1992 following the death of Tracy N. Tahy. The Tahy family has contributed money from the memorial to a scholarship to honor Lakota Cross Country runners furthering their education. Money for this Memorial Scholarship has been continued from the Myron Cline family by publishing a Lakota Tradition book with 472 pages of the history of his coaching years. Myron started the Lakota Cross Country Tradition in 1966 and retired in 1987 as a very successful Lakota coach. Our wish is to continue this scholarship to encourage and contribute to athletes in the furthering of their education. Runners also honored in this scholarship include Dan Biddle and Bryan Windom.
