EATON — The 9th Annual “Ratt” 5K race/walk will take place Saturday, July 8 at Eaton High School.
The event, which begins at 8:30 a.m., is presented by the Pieratt Family and the Eaton Cross County Parent Organization.
The event was started in 2009 in the memory of Steve Pieratt, who died in September of 2007.
The money raised from the event is used to benefit the Steve Pieratt Memorial Scholarship Fund, which gives a $1,000 scholarship to an Eaton High School student.
Steve volunteered countless hours helping the cross country organization, Eaton Little League, coaching and on the Cross Country Parent Committee when his youngest son, Blake, was a member of the Eaton Cross County program.
He was famous for saying, “It’s about the kids.”
