The Kyle Lenhardt Memorial 5k

Support the fight against asthma at this weekend's 5k event!


by Morgan Koziar - August 13, 2014

Today on Wellsboro Home Page we had the opportunity to talk to Bridgette Leske-Heed who is the mother of Kyle Lenhardt.

As many of you can unfortunately remember, in June of 2011, 15-year-old Kyle Lenhardt suffered a fatal asthma attack as he slept. His family has organized many events in his honor to keep his memory alive throughout the community. On Saturday August 16, 2014 there will be a 5K memorial walk/run at the Tioga County Fairgrounds. Runners and walkers are both welcome! All of the proceeds raised at the events will benefit a scholarship in Kyle’s name at the Wellsboro Area High School.

There will also be a yardsale at the fairgrounds with thousands of items donated from families around the area. Lunch will be provided as well.

A representative from the American Asthma Association will be present for the duration of the event with demonstrations and information for anyone interested.

For more information on how you can register for the 5K, visit this event page. Registration is $20.00 and all participants will receive a free t-shirt.
