On August 15th, over one hundred locals participated in the first Pyro’s “Push It Up” Trail Run in honor of Captain William “Pyro” DuBois from New Castle, who lost his life in early December of 2014, while piloting an F-16. The monies raised from the Trail Run benefit a legacy scholarship fund through Pyro’s Wings Foundation to help provide financial support to future combat pilots.
DWC employees in Glenwood Springs were proud to support the cause. The office kicked off the Run with a Pyro’s Wings T-shirt day and some staff also participated in the event.
