Glow in the Deke

Glow in the Deke 5k fun run/walk

The Hope Lives Foundation organizes the annual Glow in the Deke 5k, which is a fun run/walk through the streets and trails surrounding La Crosse’s Myrick/Hixon area. The run is held in memory of its namesake, Derrick “Deke” Kroll, who was a former Director of Operations for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse. Deke passed away in 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer, but his legacy of providing a safe, healthy and energizing environment for local youth lives on.
