Saturday, July 25, was a fun filled day of activities in Cokeville celebrating pioneers and the heritage they left behind. The day began with a 5K “Run for Swayzee” hosted by the Cokeville High School National Honor Society early in the morning along the Westside road and back. This run was a service project fundraiser for Swayzee Cornia. Swayzee is a darling two-year-old little girl who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. The event was well attended and due to the generosity of so many, the National Honor Society was able to present the Cornia family with a monetary gift as well as T-shirts for the whole family. Special thanks to All West for providing T-shirts for all of the participants, Kelsie Teichert and the Gold Buckle for gift certificates for some of the winners, Pete and Gwen Petersen for funds to purchase prizes, the Ice Haven Snow Shack for gift certificates for some of the winners and Talisha Hobbs for help with some prizes. Thanks to everyone who came out and participated and to the National Honor Society and other volunteers who made the event a success. “Run for Swayzee” winners:
