Cadiz City Attorney, Allen Wilson, lost his wife Amelia on June 25, 2021 following a lengthy battle with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD), which is a cancer faced only by organ transplant recipients. Many residents of Cadiz knew Amelia from her work as a field representative for Congressman James Comer. On October 23, 2021, a 10K/Half Marathon will be held as a fundraiser for an organization she believed in, and worked so hard for; the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA). Amelia was an organ recipient early in life and unfortunately lost her life due to complications later in life (but way too soon at 39 years old).
If you can’t attend in person, you can still participate virtually! Choose the virtual option when registering. Fall running at Land Between the Lakes and Grand Rivers KY is stunningly beautiful. This year’s course will feature the 10k as before, but the half marathon will use the LBL Canal Loop; the same trail one we use for the Spring LBL Trail runs. It will be shortened to a half marathon distance.
