As the local community came together for the Forrest Goetsch run on June 23, 2012, several Intercity State Bank employees waited behind the start line along with the other runners. Participants had the option to run/walk either 2 miles or 5 miles for the benefit. This year was the second time this event was held and both years have had a great turnout. This year, over 800 participants were registered!
Forrest Goetsch was a 14-year-old D.C. Everest student who loved to run as a cross-country athlete. His smile was contagious and he had a warm personality, which is why he was so well-liked. On September 21, 2009 Forrest collapsed and passed away during warm-ups at cross country practice. This charity run has been established in memory of Forrest Goetsch. Intercity State Bank felt honored that they could sponsor such a wonderful and meaningful event in the community. Some Intercity State Bank employees even placed well at the awards ceremony! It was a memorable race for all.
