Hometown Hero: Tracey Young

By Melissa Painter | 

Tracey Young started what has become a Bowling Green athletic tradition.

The Family Enrichment Center Run/Walk for Children holds its fifth annual race this weekend and it's all because of an idea from Young.

Her love of running developed during high school and college when she was on the track team.

As a board member for the Family Enrichment Center, Young thought a race fundraiser would be a good idea.

She was right. The run/walk has raised about $60,000 for the center. That's why Tracey Young is this week's Hometown Hero.
