A 5K and fun run is being organized by the King Smith family to raise awareness for kidney health and transplants.
The event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 2, and will start at 8 a.m. at the Preston High School track on 200 East. A check-in will begin at 7 a.m., according to Lisa Taylor, one of Smith’s daughters.
Smith, a Preston resident, taught science for years at Preston Junior High School. He also kept official weather records for the National Weather Service. Smith retired from teaching last spring due to a kidney ailment. He was the final speaker at the high school commencement program last May.
Taylor said she expects at least 200 runners for the event.
