A 22-year-old Bailey man was killed last Friday, October 19, in a single car crash in Tyrone Township.
According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Kelby Hunter Freeland was driving a 2001 Volvo eastbound on 20 Mile Road, about 3:45 a.m., when he lost control of his vehicle near 3464 20 Mile, west of Peach Ridge Avenue, and ran off the road.

Annual 5K race raises awareness, support for Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Each year, Mitchell Peterson’s parents, Steve and Sandy Peterson, are amazed at the support they receive from the community. Over 100 volunteers help to make Mitchell’s Run thru Rockford go smoothly and to bring awareness and money to be donated to Parent Project MD, a national nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by parents of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Mitchell’s Run thru Rockford has more than doubled in size and scope since the Petersons established it in 1999. Since then, the event has raised over $600,000, all donated to PPMD in the name of their son Mitchell Peterson, age 15 of Rockford. This year will be the 13th annual run.
“After our son was diagnosed, my wife and I wanted to make a difference. We’re thrilled this race has helped to raise awareness and support, at least in our neck of the woods. More people now know about Duchenne MD, which is important because this disease can happen in any family and currently affects many boys and their families here in West Michigan,” explains Steve Peterson.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday August 20 at 8:30 a.m. in downtown Rockford. The race starts at the bridge and travels along the scenic White Pine Trail and Rogue River.
The Kids for Kids K starts at 9:30 am. This is a competitive race but also a family event featuring a silent auction during and awards ceremony following the race. For more race details, visit: www.mitchellsrun.org.
