Hy-Vee Pinky Swear 5K and Fun Run stresses fun and fundraising

On a gray day in Minneapolis in 2003, Steve and Becky Chepokas suffered the devastating loss of their son, Mitch, to cancer. From that barren ground of grief, a charitable organization and thriving altruistic event has bloomed – the Pinky Swear Foundation and its road race for children.

Sunday morning, on a bright, muggy day along the Mississippi River, more than 500 area runners took part in the third annual Hy-Vee Pinky Swear 5K and Fun Run at Davenport’s Centennial Park.
