This race benefits the Kiski Area Youth Network that was inspired by the life and faith story of Jenna Prusia. Jenna was a junior at Kiski Area High School when she lost her life on December 28, 2012 in a sled riding accident. Jenna had a deep faith in God and love for her friends and classmates at Kiski. KAYN was started to share Jenna’s faith story and help teens in our community to navigate life and the challenges that teens face growing up in an ever changing world. Come run to remember Jenna and honor a young life lived well!
