The memory of the late Eva Marie Bock will again be honored with the annual fundraising event hosted by the Weston County Children’s Center. On June 15, the center will host its third Eva Marie Bock 5K Glow Walk/Run.
“Eva Marie worked at the center basically since she was in high school. She worked there forever and loved the kids,” said Jamie Beastrom, family services coordinator at the center.
The funds raised through the event provide scholarships for preschool children in both Crook and Weston counties, the number of children benefiting from the scholarship varies. The 5K honors Bock by continuing to share her love for children and early childhood education, Beastrom said.
