In the summer of 2017, two of Tom’s close friends organized a 5k run/Walk to gather friends and family together to remember and celebrate the life of their good friend, Tom Pfeifle. They managed to do this while away at college, which was quite an accomplishment. The event was a resounding success with over 300 participants. Bill and Diane Tschetter were two of the volunteers at this heart warming event, and were moved by the love and support shown by the community.

Tom was an incredible young man who excelled at everything he did, touched the lives of all who were blessed to know him, and lived life to the fullest. When Bill and Diane discovered Tom’s friends were unable to continue to coordinate the 5k run while busy in college, they offered to take on the challenge. Being passionate about continuing the event, a 501(c)(3) non -profit organization was formed and a strong team of dedicated hard-working individuals was created to help put on a family friendly run/walk.

Jane and Craig’s choice of Raider Park the beneficiary is a perfect fit, given Tom’s love for the outdoors, exercise and care of the environment.
Under the leadership of Bill and Diane, all committee members bring different gifts and talents to the table. We are so thankful for the consistent willingness to meet weekly, sharing a common vision, ideas, and plans to do our best to honor Tom, and raise funds for the development of Raider Park.
