Honoring our Fallen Troops by Partnering With Two Great Causes

Honoring our Fallen Troops by Partnering With Two Great Causes

The DeCelle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay has always had a close connection to our troops. This historic race was re-named in 1971 in honor of Captain Robert E DeCelle Jr who was killed in action in Vietnam. On top of that, El Dorado County has the highest per capita concentration of veterans in all of California. Inspired by our good friend Jim Cahill, a veteran and special education teacher in South Lake, we decided this year to go above and beyond our normal way of honoring our fallen troops by partnering with two great causes for even more awareness.
