Family and friends will gather to celebrate the life of Michael Janasik during the Spread Your Wings 5K walk on Sunday, Sept. 29 at Bayside Middle School, 601 E. Ellsworth Ln. Registration opens at 10 a.m., with the walk beginning at 11 a.m. A post-walk celebration will follow at 12:30 p.m. The event will also serve as a benefit for schools in the Fox Point/Bayside area.
Janasik was killed in a tragic car accident involving a drunk driver in 2009, just after turning eighteen years old. Spread Your Wings is an opportunity to remember his life as well as raise funds for the Fox Point-Bayside Education Foundation, which has set out to help purchase needed equipment and resources for Stormonth Elementary School and Bayside Middle School.
