About This Activity

The 1st Annual Tyler Hook Hillmer Glow In The Dark Trail Walk/Run. This event is in memory of Tyler Hook Hillmer who was a freshman at PPS. He was killed in a car accident August 23, 2013. He had a smile that melted your heart and loved having fun with friends & family. He as known a one of the guys who could run "FAST". So we felt this would be perfect to do in his memory. The 5K walk/run will start at the Palmer High School Football Field heading out the driveway you will go past the Rose Hill Cemetery. If you would like to stop to see Tyler for a moment going or coming his grave will be lit. We will continue on to the country road where you may possibly hear the wonderful sounds of nature, like the cricket chirping, the birds singing and see the remainder of the beautiful sunset as it goes down. The trail will continue on the country road for a mile where we will turn onto a minimum maintenance road. This road is sure to be windy, rough, scenic with trees and grass, and the possiblity of a deer, turkey, or even squirrel running up one of the trees is always there. You will continue to the "turn about" on the minimum maintenance road and walk/run back to the country road, up one of our major sandy hills, past the Rose Hill Cemetery and to the finish line at the high school football field. If you are doing the 1 mile walk/run that will start after the last person is on their way for the 5K. The 1 mile trail will journey the opposite direction, going between the in town streets and the gravel roads finishing at the high school football field. The proceeds from the walk/run will go to the Tyler Hook Hillmer Memorial Fund and some will be donated to a local organization.

Why do we Walk/Run?-Tyler Hook Hillmer was a freshman at PPS. He was killed in a car accident on August, 23, 2013. He had a smile you couldn't forget! Happy, positive, easy going personality, which made it easy for him to get along with anyone. He loved track, basketball, football, playing PS3 video games, loved listening to music and liked hanging out with friends and family. His favoite time of the day was sunset and he loved the rain. We would like to Thank-You for walk/running to celebrate his memory.

The Event-The balloon release will kick the night off at the Rose Hill Cemetery by Tyler (8 PM). Then we will head back to the Palmer High School Football Field to line up for the 5K walk/run (845-9 PM).The walk/run will be lit by glow markers to keep you on the trail. Please NO PETS. We don't want a situation that they might be scared or hurt someone in a large crowd. Since we will have lots of walk/runners along the trail at one time, please be patient at the start of the walk/run. This event will NOT be officially timed; please enjoy a fun night with friends and family to remember Tyler. If you choose to pass through the cemetery going or coming to spend a moment with Tyler we will have his grave lit. We ask that everyone on the trail, please follow the standard trail etiquette because there will be a "turn about" and we will have walk/runner on both sides of the trail. Those with strollers, please start towards the back or off to the side of the pack and respect all trail etiquette and move to single file when walk/runners approach.

Who can Participate?-Everyone is welcome.

AD,Rob Wegner from the Palmer Public School received an email back from the NSAA as to how our run this fall may affect students. "They said that students can participate with the exception of students that are on the Cross Country Team. If those kids were to participate, they would have to sit out one cross country meet this fall. Other than that any student can participate."
