The 5KM Memory Lane Run
For 2016 we are honored and proud to name the 5km race after a former Greenall ODS student Lane Antosh. Lane’s family have participated in the event each year and we would like to encourage others to run for Lane, or a loved one of your own.
Lane Antosh (1996 – 2013)
Lane Antosh’s life was tragically cut short during the summer of 2013 when he was involved in a car crash on the #1 Highway near his home town of Pilot Butte. Lane was a loving brother and son. He loved playing Minecraft, he was involved with Scouts and was a strong advocate for kids with Asperger’s. During his time with the Greenall Outdoor School (ODS), Lane was an inspiration to his classmates and instructors. Lane was the first person to contribute to class discussion and the first to volunteer to help a fellow classmate or instructor. Lane, was compassionate, caring and brave and his contributions to ODS will never be forgotten.
