The 18th Annual Trek Unveils Taylor Widmer T-Shirts [Video]
Participants in the 18th annual TREK for the St. Joseph's Peace Mission for Children will be proudly wearing orange and navy blue this year. The Trek's t-shirt design for 2015 honors former Apollo High School student and Trek supporter Taylor Widmer, who was tragically killed in a car accident last year. The shirts are awesome and here's a sneak peek!
The Trek is a 13.1 mile walk/run/bike event. It begins Sunday morning at 7:30am at the Green River in Calhoun, Kentucky. Participants can register on site with a suggested donation of just $25. All proceeds will benefit the St. Joseph's Peace Mission for Children, which was created following the 1995 murder of 4-year-old Phillip Strain.
The mission is located at 1328 West 3rd Street in Owensboro, which is also the site of the Yewell Home for Boys. The home was dedicated in 2010 and serves as the only area treatment facility for male youths between the ages of 12 and 18. The home is named for David Yewell, who originated the Trek 18 year ago when he set out to walk from downtown Calhoun to his home on Ky Hwy 56.
