Kevin’s Legacy Foundation Presents 5th Annual Color For Kindness 5K – WIZM 92.3FM 1410AM
Add some color to yourselves and support the Kevin’s Legacy Foundation for its 5th Annual Color for Kindness 5K Walk / Run this Saturday in Holmen.
The Kevin’s Legacy Foundation was established in honor of Kevin Romanowski. At the age of 16, he ended his life because of bullying and depression. Brian Sime, a board member, told Z93 that Kevin’s parents and a group decided it was time to help others so they didn’t have to go through the tragedy that the Romanowski family had had crossed.
The Kevin’s Legacy Foundation began helping fundraising with the Holmen Community Center to start a community center and to name a room in Kevin’s honor. The Boys and Girls Club has now taken over part of this building and Kevin’s room is in the Boys and Girls Club section. Now the foundation is helping to fund this hall with arts and crafts etc.
Sime said, “We are also trying to fundraise for a scholarship foundation so that we can invest money towards those entering the mental health field to help. One life is too much to lose for this, so all we can do to help people so that they do not have to go through the tragedy of the Romanovsky. “
All ages and fitness levels are welcome to come for a walk, walk and run on the trail this Saturday. Participants will be soaked in six different colors as you descend the trail.
Sime added, “We have pearls out there that you will get, and each pearl color is a different thing. One is, you know, depression or suicide, they’re just different ways of thinking about things that might help another person in your life.
There is a silent auction at the event and Kevin’s grandmother has donated a beautiful king size Green Heart quilt that will be raffled off on Saturday.
There will also be a pancake breakfast from 8:30 am to 10:30 am that morning at the Holmen American Legion.
