On May 5th, 2013 at 10:00 am we will begin the 4th Annual Thank Dank Memorial Scholarship 5K. To thank James for the precious memories that he gave to us (Family, Friends, and Community) and for always lending a hand, passing along that contagious smile, and loving life. The proceeds from the Annual event will go towards a Scholarship to a graduating senior at Mendota High School. The scholarship began in May of 2010 with hopes to continue for many years to come.
This 5K walk/run, at the beautiful Lake Kakusha property, will be held in memory of James Dankenbring. The course is a fast, flat trail that circles the lake. The property is well maintained, established grass trails through wooded and prairie lots. The course will be well marked and equipped with water stations at miles 1 and 2. Race will be held rain or shine. In case of severe weather cancellation, we thank you for your donation.
There will also be a Fun Walk available as an alternative to the 5K. The fun walk is a shorter, easier trail around Lake Mendota, better suited for strollers and wagons. Kids 10 and under are free to participate in the Fun Walk. *Child sized t-shirts are $10.00 and order must be in by April 18th.
Registration forms must be received by April 18, 2013 to guarantee a T-shirt.
Participants pre-registered by April 27th may pick up their race day materials between 1:00 and 3:00 on Saturday May 4th at First United Methodist Church, 100 6th St Mendota, IL.
