The Katie McBurnett 5K is in memory of Katie McBurnett, Columbus resident, who passed away on Sept. 18, 2012, after having received a life-saving heart transplant on March 29, 2007. The race will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, at beautiful Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana. Registration can be made online at signmeup.com/92239, and the cost of the race will be $20 before September 1. This cost will include a t-shirt and a goodie bag. All proceeds will be used to purchase Cough Buddy animals for children at Riley Hospital for Children. Cough Buddy animals are stuffed animals with a hard back that serve as splints for patients who have recently had abdomen or chest surgery. Katie received a Cough Buddy in 2007 at Riley, but the hospital as since stopped giving them to children. We want to get them back in the arms of the kids who need them the most. Any questions can be emailed to rememberkatiedonatelife@gmail.com or by calling Lindsey Thompson at 812-552-3649.
