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.

We are convinced that we can help prevent strokes through promoting an active healthy lifestyle and educating those around us to know the signs of stroke and that acting F.A.S.T does in fact saves lives! Barney was also an insulin dependant diabetic which played a significant role in his health crisis. Diabetes, heart disease and stroke run in the Shirey family and this family is determined for these condtions to not be their destiny! Will you join us in the fight?

This year's Partnership and proceeds will be going to the National Stroke Association for stroke prevention & the Barney Shirey Memorial Scholarship Fund. We hope to educate and help prevent other families from the same loss.
