WHEATLAND - After a successful first year, the organizers of the Shirt Off Your Back 5K are ready for another.
Wyoming Youth Outreach, Inc. hosts the Shirt Off Your Back 5K on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., beginning at Lewis Park.
Lisa Glover, one of the event's organizers, said the 5K originated last year, the brainchild of Jesse Moore, who worked with Glover with the Eastern Wyoming Ambulance Service.
Glover said one of Moore's "bucket list" items was to do something for the Children's Hospital of Colorado. A total of 118 participants gathered for the inaugural event, raising $3,100 for the cause.
"We decided we wanted to do this every year," Glover said. This year's event will support the Ronald McDonald House of Aurora, Colo. and to establish and support a scholarship fund for local high school students. For the complete article see the 09-25-2013 issue.
