Name the Race!


As some of you may know, last fall I ran in the Evansville Half Marathon in support of the Travis Burkhart Foundation. This year, along with Travis’ mom Kim, I am putting together a 5k/10k walk-run in Daviess County! The date has not been set, but it will be sometime in October 2011. To make the event more fun/interesting, we are doing a Halloween theme. Costumes are optional, but we encourage participants to dress up and have fun!!! The contest is for you all to help come up with a name for the race. The winner will get to particpate for free in the 5k/10k and get a free event t-shirt. THE CONTEST ENDS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1ST!!! Please email your suggestions to me at or Kim Burkhart at Please keep the names clean and appropriate. This is for a good cause! Proceeds from the race will go to the Travis Burkhart Foundation and Therapeutic Riding Scholarships. Will post dates and time, once they are set. For those who are interested, the registration fee is $30.00, and this includes event t-shirt. The race is for ages 13 and up. Strollers are allowed on the course, but we ask NO PETS please. Following the race, there will be a dinner- participants will eat for free, for everyone else it will be $7.00 a plate. Since we are doing a Halloween theme, prior to the race there will be a small walk for children to show off their Halloween costumes! (treat bags will be given to the kids). Any questions, please feel free to email me or Kim!! Please send us your ideas for the name contest if you are wanting to participate!!!! Thank you, Susan (Nichols) Ramsey
