The 8th annual Run for Treyton Kilar was held on October 14, 2018, in Whitewater, WI. Treyton Kilar was killed by a drunk driver on the night of September 2, 2010.
From Treyton’s mother, Mary Kilar, “Destructive decisions can and do injure and kill. Each day gives us hope that we can send a message of making this world just a little safer – Treyton would have wanted that for all of us. And to any and all who have experienced tragedy at the hands of destructive decisions. This run honors you. It happens far too often and we all can work for change. Today is to honor that in all our lives.”
Well over 200 adults and children participated in the family-friendly event that included a family (and pet) 5K walk/run, child obstacle course and bouncy houses, food, face paint, and fun.
The money raised from this event supports maintaining the youth sized professional baseball field in Whitewater built for kids to love the game. In addition, educational scholarships are given to support local seniors who have made great choices and wish to continue their education.
The Kilar family wishes to thank the run/walk coordinators Molly and Dan Fuller along with all who came out in support of this event that honors Treyton and good decisions that can better our world.
