The PeeWee A team completed a 5k run at Hammonasett Beach in Madison on Saturday Nov 7th. The run was in memory of Captain Andrew Pederson-Keel (APK).
Captain Andrew Pederson-Keel was from Madison, an Avon Old Farms alum, and a graduate of West Point who fought in the Special Forces in Afghanistan. In 2013, APK was completing a patrol briefing when he was killed by an Afghan who was supposed to be his friend. He was 29 years old.
APK Charities was created after APK's death. All the money raised by APK Charities is used to raise awareness and support for active, retired, wounded and fallen warriors and their families. The APK 5k helps to fund APK Charities.
Great job to our Warriors for showing their support. And, THANK YOU to our Veterans, on Veteran's Day.
