Kelli O'Laughlin was a freshman at Lyons Township High School, and on Sunday, November 11, 2012, hundreds gathered at the school for a run in her memory. All proceeds from the "Run for Kelli" (http://tinyurl.com/RunforKelli) go to the Kelli Joy O'Laughlin Memorial Fund.
There will also be a raffle for all participants. Featured prizes include tickets to Chicago Bears and Bulls games, gift certificates to restaurants and golf courses, spas and more.
ABC7's Ben Bradley recently talked to her parents as they organized the run, and Brenda and John O'Laughlin joined us live from the event site during our ABC7 News Sunday Morning to tell us more.
