This FUN "glow in the dark" 5K is a unique adventure through the trails of Myrick Park. Glow in the Deke is in memory of Derrick "Deke" Kroll, who lost a courageous battle with cancer in 2009. Derrick was a very loved staff member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse for over 20 years. He had a passion for helping all youth. His wife, Debby, his son, Dammon, and many other family members and friends set this fundraising event up to honor Deke's memory and highlight his passion for running and for kids! All proceeds from this event benefit youth from the La Crosse area at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse and the Hope Lives Foundation.
