A large crowd of supporters turned out for Wilmot Union High School’s 5K fun run/walk on Wednesday to honor Nathan Walter.
Walter died after a traffic accident this summer. He would have been a senior at Wilmot this fall.
There were about 750 participants, we were told.
Proceeds from the event are to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House, which the Walter family used while Nathan was hospitalized in Milwaukee after the accident. Nathan’s father, Scott, told the crowd how Nate used to collect pop tabs as a kid for a neighbor for the Ronald McDonald House and they’d give him a cookie. They never dreamed they would be using the facility themselves, he said.
