A group of area community members are hoping to raise some money to help the family of the fallen Illinois State Police Trooper, Kyle Deatherage. Deatherage died after a semi-truck hit him while he was on the side of the road for a traffic stop. There will be a 5K run/walk on December 15th at ten in Mt. Pulaski. The fee will be $10 for each walker or runner with all of the proceeds goign to the family. The race will start on the square in Mt. Pulaski at Washington and Jefferson.
For more information you can call 962-1055 or you can make a direct donation to: Kyle Deatherage Memorial Fun, 12455 State Route 143, Highland, IL 62149.
