The morning of May 24 meant a lot to many. It was the 7th Annual Kent's Run. The race was created to preserve the memory of Kent Ribordy, a student at Boone Grove High School who ran track and cross country and was loved by all that knew him. Ribordy was diagnosed with leukemia and passed away his freshman year. But his life is remembered and celebrated each year during Kent's Run.
