Event Details

Join us in this 5k walk/run in loving memory of Carter Lee Kerns, son of Alyssa and Ed Kerns. Carter died in a tragic accident the day before his first birthday. Determined to bring good from tragedy, his parents founded the Carter Lee Kerns Memorial Fund, a permanent endowment fund established at the Martin County Community Foundation.

All race proceeds will go to the Carter Lee Kerns Memorial Fund held and administered by the Community Foundation Partnership Inc. on behalf of the Martin County Community Foundation to support non-profit organizations that work to enhance the lives of children and families in Martin County, IN.

The 5k will begin at the West Boggs Park Beach and wrap itself around the campsite areas and the picnic woods.
