The BARNEY SHIREY MEMORIAL 5K is proud to partner with the Tecumseh Chamber and their Annual Frontier Days Celebration.

Barney Shirey was a man that loved Jesus Christ, family, and all things Tecumseh, America. Barney suffered a massive stroke on 9/11/2005 that left him unable to walk or talk. His family spent those years providing 24-hour care to him. He lost his life to another massive stroke on December 21, 2010 and it is in his honor that his family offers you the opportunity to join in this memorial 5k run/walk. Barney's life was cut too short.
