The 15th annual TREK to benefit the St. Joseph's Peace Mission for Children took place yesterday.  Each year, the event kicks off at First Security Bank on the river in Calhoun and wraps up on HWY 56 at David Yewell's home.  David started this TREK 15 years ago and it has grown into an impressive annual tradition and fundraiser.  TREK is a challenging but exhilirating 13-mile bike, walk and run and participants of all ages tackle the course.  Yesterday, I encountered a local Girl Scout troop biking along for a great cause and I even managed to hitch (okay, steal!) a ride on a bike.  Check it out!

Yesterday's TREK drew hundreds of game participants, including former Moto GP champion, Nicky Hayden, who naturally biked the course like a champ!  And Daviess County Sheriff Keith Cain, who runs the event annually.  The TREK, again, proved to be a great day of fellowship, fun, sport and food!  We can't wait to hear how much money was raised for St. Joseph's Peace Mission for Children and the Yewell Home for Boys!
