About This Activity

Join us for the 2nd Annual eLUKEp 5K Run & Walk benefitting the family of Everett "Luke" Potter! Last year we had over 300 participants and we anticipate even more this year!
As a community, we stand as one and we are here to support one of our own! Here is a little background as to why we are holding this event:
On Tuesday, July 16th, Everett “Luke” Potter, 40, showed up to work at City Hall in Lewistown as he had for the past 17 years. While walking upstairs from the basement, he suffered a cardiac episode and fell. His co-workers had no idea anything was wrong until someone saw him sitting at the foot of the stairs 45 minutes later, when it was too late. Luke left behind his beautiful wife, Angie, and four young children: Brennan, Ella, Scarlett, and Easton. Friends and family remember a compassionate, hard-working man with an infectious smile, a devoted Dad, who coached every team his kids played for. He was known for his love of plants, machinery and his sense of humor. He touched the lives of everyone in Lewistown and the surrounding communities. He was, and always will be, the face of Lewistown, Illinois.
