Join us for the 2nd annual Will Run's in memory of Will Goodale.  This 5k run/walk will be held on Sunday, October 4th at Meridian Township park. This is a family friendly event, all ages and abilities welcome! 

The Will Goodale Memorial Foundation was created in memory of our son Will, who passed away at age 10 on November 2, 2015. Will always wanted to be a police officer and swat-team member for The Meridian Township or Michigan State Police. The purpose of this foundation is to remember and carry-on Will's name & spirit and to help those who share his life-long dreams and goals of pursuing law enforcement. Proceeds from all foundation events, donations, and sponsorships will be invested in full and used to provide scholarships for students entering a police academy.
