In its first seven years, the annual Pickle Chase 5K and Bell Pepper Fun Run, run in honor of Jodie Stearns, has raised $58,000 for scholarship, a local domestic violence shelter and Elmwood's new track.
This year, organizers are hoping to raise more than $5,000 to add to that total to benefit the Tom Waldock/Jodie Stearns Scholarship Fund at Elmwood Schools and the Cocoon Shelter.
The 8th annual race begins June 29 at Elmwood High School. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with the 5K run/walk at 8:30 a.m. and the Fun Run at 9:15 a.m.
"I think it is something that people who knew Jodie enjoy being part of," said Doug Cubberley, a race coordinator. "It lets people reflect on who Jodie was and how much she supported the Elmwood School District."
Stearns, an Elmwood High School graduate and an avid runner, was killed in 2006 while jogging. She was a former private practice attorney and an assistant prosecutor for Bowling Green who handled domestic violence cases.
For those pre-registered by Tuesday, the cost is $17 for the 5K and $8 for the Fun Run. The first 250 registered are guaranteed to receive a shirt.
On the day of the race, the 5K registration fee is $20 and the Fun Run is $2 (no shirt).
There will be awards for top finishers and door prizes.
