LUK's 7th Annual "Corduroy King" Scholarship 5k!
On Sunday, June 25th, 2017 LUK will have its 7th annual 5k hosted at Lake Quinsigamond State Park rain or shine! This fun, flat 5K course for all abilities starts at Lake Park, 284 Lake Ave (across from the ice rink). Registrants will recieve a gift bag that includes a free t-shirt if registered by May 25th. Free Barbecue for all participants! A kid's fun run will begin at 10:30 am. Registration and check-in day of the race will open at 10:00 am and close at 10:45 am.
This is the fourth year we will raise money for a fund in the name of David Kilcoyne, "The Corduroy King" a dedicated staff member who lost his life late in 2013. All proceeds of this event will go to a Scholarship in the name of David Kilcoyne and allow a child access to an adventure based program, which is an opportunity that they may not otherwise have.
Dave Kilcoyne was one of the original TREK staff, starting in 2006. Dave was an original, one of a kind, king of corduroy and a lover of adventure. Dave loved kids, and kids loved him back. A few years ago Dave solo hiked for a summer along the Appalachian trail. He talked about writing a book about his experiences in the woods. In the summer of 2013 Dave pledged to hike 600 miles in 60 days to raise funds for the TREK program. Just him and his new tent. Dave left the trail to come back and care for his ailing Dad, and by all accounts was his anchor. Shortly after his Dad passed Dave also took a different trail, and left us as well. We miss his laugh, his humor, his giant smile and even bigger heart.
