Columbia runners hang commemorative bell

Thursday, April 16, 2009 | 3:13 p.m. CDT
Friends in the Columbia running community hung a bell and a poem in memory of the late Mark "Kona" Volek, who died April 4 at A.L. Gustin Golf Course at MU. The memorial items were temporarily placed at the entrance to the MKT Trail on Forum Boulevard and will later find a permanent home along the trail. Friends gathered together at the MKT Tail on Thursday for a memorial run in Volek's honor. His death is under investigation as an apparent suicide.
