FROG-HOP FIVE 5K RUN/WALK
Trinity Lutheran Church, Goodland, IN, invites you to join us as we remember Levi Mueller who passed away suddenly on April 6, 2017, at the age of 15 1/2. Levi, who attended South Newton High School, was a gifted athlete, an outstanding student, and a great friend to all who knew him. Among Levi’s many interests and activities were Cross Country, Soccer, Band, 4H, Junior Honor Society, Higher Things, summer baseball, Lego’s, reading, and Sunday School Youth activities.
Levi’s family has requested that any proceeds from the Frog-Hop Five be used to benefit Birthright of Rensselaer and Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.
Anyone who knew Levi will understand the significance of the name of our race, why our race shirts are neon green, and why there are frogs in our logo!
