Her “free spirit”—as well as her love of family and friends—will be celebrated by raising funds for the Katie Lynch Scholarship Fund for Roncalli students, as well as helping to make the dreams of sick children come true.

The second annual event will be held at Roncalli High School, 3300 Prague Road in Indianapolis. It will include a 5K run/walk and a 1-mile Kiddie Romp. Registration is from 8-9 a.m., and the walk begins at 9:30 a.m.
