I'm Thankful Four is a four mile road run that was started in 2004 as a tribute to Kelsey Mikel.  Since we lost Kelsey in a tragic car accident, we have continued to gather and run in her memory on Thanksgiving morning.


All of the proceeds from the events go to the Kelsey Mikel Memorial Foundation, which provides scholarships to high school students.
