The Yorkville Middle School Track Team banded together in the wake of the aftermath of the Feb. 28 Tornado that struck the village of Ottawa and damaged the LaSalle Township Nursing Home, injuring many residence and causing extensive damage to the building. Over the past weeks, YMS track members have been collecting donations for the mile they ran on April 4 in support of those affected. All donations were collected and the YMS Track team was able to collect more than $2,800 to donate to the LaSalle County Nursing Home. If you are still interested in making a donation, you may send donations to the LaSalle County Board in Ottawa, IL. Pictured below are the members of the Yorkville Middle School Track team after their mile run.
