Why We Run/Walk
The annual race is in memory of young Duncan & Jack Leichtenberg of LeRoy, victims of the 2009 murder-suicide by their father after he failed to return them to their mother from a visit. All proceeds from the race support the Family Visitation Center – the only one of its kind in the McLean County region. The center provides a safe, neutral child friendly environment for supervised visitation and exchanges for families where there is an active order of protection in place.
