The 5k walk/run is in loving memory of Carter Lee Kerns, son of Alyssa and Ed Kerns. Carter died in a tragic accident the day before his first birthday. Determined to bring good from tragedy, his parents founded the Carter Lee Kerns Memorial Fund, a permanent endowment fund established at the Martin County Community Foundation. Annual payouts from this fund will go to support non-profit organizations that work to enhance the lives of children and families in Martin County, IN. All race proceeds will go to the Carter Lee Kerns Memorial Fund held and administered by the Community Foundation Partnership Inc. on behalf of the Martin County Community Foundation.

We are proud to be part of the 4th annual Family Fun Day. We are happy to be partnering with West Boggs Park and the Cops and Kids program. The 5K will kick off an afternoon of fun. There will be a bounce house, free lunch (Kids and Cops picnic), a DJ, Touch-A-Truck (we have LOTS of cool trucks), law enforcement meet and greet, K-9 demonstrations and a few surprises. This event will occur rain or shine. Plan to come out and enjoy activities for every age!
Thanks to the generosity of West Boggs Park, the gate fee will be waived for everyone on May 30th. So, come on out and enjoy a wonderful family day!
