Registration open for Kern Memorial 5k

The third annual Kern Memorial Twilight 5K will take place Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m., beginning and ending on the Eastern Idaho Technical College campus, the college community of Michelle and Malinda Kern.

Participants are welcome to walk or run the 5K route. Registration is $35 and will be available at the event.

Michelle Kern was a 2011 graduate from EITC’s Business Technologies Marketing & Management Associate of Applied Science degree program and an officer in Collegiate DECA. Three days after graduating, Michelle, her sister Malinda (who was an enrolled EITC student), and Michelle’s two young sons, Jack and Gage were murdered in Michelle’s parents’ home. This tragedy was a great loss to family and friends, Eastern Idaho Technical College, and the entire Ammon/Idaho Falls community.

Proceeds from the Twilight 5K will be used to support the Kern Memorial Scholarship for an EITC student.

Food and craft booth space is available at this event.
