    • Kirk Pedersen’s Powder to the People 5k run/walk
      Apr 29
      Walled Lake Central High School
      District Calendar

      Walled Lake Central High School is proud to put on their second annual Kirk Pedersen’s Powder to the People 5k run/walk. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it is a 5k that takes place on the roads near Walled Lake Central High School. This event will benefit former WL Central teacher, Kirk Pederson.

      On October 25, 2008 Kirk’s life came to a crashing halt. The tree stand he was using collapsed while hunting, leaving him paralyzed from the shoulders down. Kirk would endure seven months of hospitalization at three different hospitals. His goal was a full recovery and a return to teaching in the profession he loved. Despite continued rehabilitation and determination, his recovery resulted in a fashion that did not allow him to return to teaching in the classroom. Kirk continues to be an inspiring and motivated person despite his numerous setbacks.

      Now Kirk is scheduled for another surgery that will leave him on bed rest for 2-3 months. This is not only physically challenging but mentally too. To help him get through this rough time, there is a special device that will prevent muscle atrophy. It is a device meant to be worn, that will use electric impulses to stimulate his muscles by expanding and contracting them to give him a form of exercise that is so important to Mr. Pedersen. Last year’s run we were able to give him $3,000 to use for rehabilitation and any other needs he might have. While we are so proud of how the community came together, we are aiming to surpass last year's goal in support of kirk, but also to support someone's friend, someone's family and most importantly someone in need of your help.
