STURGIS — The fifth annual Brandon Delzer Legacy run was held on Saturday in Sturgis, with over 50 runners and walkers participating to raise funds for scholarships for Sturgis High School graduates.  

This year’s event planner and coordinator was Emily Bates, a Sturgis Brown High School (SBHS) senior.    

“I did this event because I grew up with Brandon, he was my brother’s best friend, and I enjoy running, so that is why I wanted to do this event,” said Bates, who estimated the run would raise around $3,000.  

“I would like to thank Emily Bates for doing the run this year, it is always an honor to have the event, and it is really nice to have it coincide with the Meade County fair,” said Cheryl Delzer. “Brandon was always really involved with the fair, he loved showing animals so to me it was a good fit to do it together.”  

The overall winner was Nate Anderson of Sturgis, with a time of just over 20 minutes. 

Individual awards were presented to the top male and female in each age category.  

Male: under 12, Ethan Lundeen, 13-19, Nate Anderson, 20-29, Ryan McLaughlin, 30-39, Alex Nickelson, 40-49, Paul Dinkins, and 50+ Gene Griffin.

Female: under 12, Josie Reedy, 13-19, Jess Matthew, 20-29, Brooke Ireland, 30-39, Natalie Serbousek, 40-49, Trish Dinkins, and 50+ Cindy Ireland.
