Mileka’s run set for Sunday, May 8

The fifth annual Mileka’s Run is set for Sunday, May 8 (Mother’s Day), in the Silver Lake City Park.
A kids’ 1K run will start at 10:30 a.m., followed by a 5K fun run/walk at 11 a.m.
The run is hosted by the family of Mileka Hall, who died on Mother’s Day weekend in 2011 from injuries sustained in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident.
In her honor, her family — mother JoAnna Hall, father Kyle Wawrzyniak and sisters Brianna and Ashley Hall — have organized this 5K run/walk to celebrate Mileka’s life and her positive impact on others.
Mileka was a huge supporter of her mother’s races, and was considered JoAnna’s “cheering section.”
The cost of the kids’ run is $10 and the 5K race is $20. Children 5 and under are free. Registration includes a T-shirt and a light lunch provided after the race.
The 5K is a timed chip event.
 There also will be free face painting.
Mileka was a third grader at Dassel Elementary. All proceeds from the event go toward scholarships at Dassel-Cokato and Glencoe-Silver Lake schools.
