Elijah Wagers was tragically lost on July 9, 2015. Eli may have only been 14, but his impact on this world and those who knew him was well beyond his years. Eli had a HEART OF GOLD! He was kind, hardworking, generous, compassionate, strong and full of life. Eli was always up for a challenge, and loved all things athletic. Let's come together to run in Eli's memory, enjoy celebrating him and raise money for a cause near and dear to him.  Funds raised will be used to send kids to the same church camp Eli attended. One of the very last acts he did was to give money he earned to help a peer pay to attend camp. Last year we were able to send 60 kids to camp!


All proceeds go to the Remember Eli Foundation. For complete information about this organization, go to their website at:
