Tracy Vsetecka Memorial Walk

Saturday, TBD

Join us for the 6th Annual Tracy Vsetecka Memorial Walk. 

Tracy Vsetecka was a principal in the Widefield School District 3 for over 13 years. Her unexpected passing affected many throughout the community. Tracy's engaging presence, positive nature, and ever-present smile made a lasting impact on all she knew and those she had only just met. Her family has joined with Widefield Parks & Recreation and Woodland Wanderers to extend her celebration of life and enjoyment of exercise to the community with a non-competitive walking event in her honor. Join us for a  free walk and an opportunity to donate to the Tracy Vsetecka Scholarship Fund to continue her legacy.
