In honor of his lifetime of service, the friends and family are in the process of starting the TKV5K Move Over race / 1 mile fun walk in order to raise awareness for the many emergency personnel working on our Ohio roadways. Proceeds from this event will be placed in a memorial fund and will assist in continuing this event and others annually.
We will see you there!
