NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio (WJW) — One of FOX 8’s own was remembered Saturday morning in a memorial run/walk event in North Royalton.
Officially called the 2021 Bubble Blast Kathleen DePiero Memorial 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk, the event raised funds for the North Royalton Family Y to help area kids and children have the opportunity to be involved with the YMCA’s leagues, lessons and other programming.
The event, which kicked off at 8 a.m., was the sixth iteration of the event. This year, more than $12,000 was raised for the YMCA.
DePiero, who passed away in 2017, was a longtime advocate for area youth and was a board member for the Y.
