Michael Troy Wieser race set for April 9, 2011

The Michael Troy Wieser 5k run/walk is set for 9 a.m. on Sat. April 9, 2011 at La Crescent Community Arena. Money raised from the race will go toward the Michael Troy Wieser scholarship and the Rich and Barb Kaiser family of La Crescent, this year's "honored" family. The Kaisers have two students at La Crescent High School, 11th grader Jordan and ninth-grader Kaleb.

The family has endured several medical challenges this year, including several heart surgeries for Rich and a severe car accident in which Kaleb was involved. Furthermore, the family has moved in with the childrens' grandmother to care for her after their grandfather recently passed away. Event organizers say Jordan has been a positive inspiration for the family, as she tries to keep an upbeat attitude and works hard in school. Kaleb is working to make up the time missed due to his accident last fall.

Registration is $12 before March 25 or $15 after, including the day of the race. All entrants receive a t-shirt and awards will be given to top overall finishers and the top finishers in each age division.

Entry forms and pledge sheets are available at Curves in La Crescent, Snap Fitness, the La Crescent High School office, or by calling (608) 317-7749. The face is sponsored by the La Crescent High School Community Leadership Class and Lancer Link Crew. Pledges will be split between the Wieser scholarship and the Kaiser family.
