The goal of A Pace for Petey is to bring about awareness to overdose/drug addiction and recovery.  It is in honor of Jordan "Petey" Scribner, who at the young age of 20, lost his battle of addiction to a tragic heroin overdose on February 17, 2014.  It will begin in the south parking lot of Tuscola High school, close to his final resting place, and end with a lap on the track around the TCHS football field, where he played many, many football games and ran on the track team.  

New this year is a kids fun run, called Jake's Jog! It is in honor of Jacob (Petey's brother), who also lost his battle to substance use, on May 29, 2019, at the age of 29. His resting place is right next to his brother. Jacob always drove the golf cart sag wagon at A Pace for Petey, prior to losing his battle. Jake's jog is for kids 10 and under. It will be one lap around the track and all kids will receive a participation medal. 

Both boys are GREATLY missed--especially by Jake's daughter, Makenna!
