Derrick "Deke" Kroll was a man of great passion. Passion for life, family, friends, running, and enabling the youth of La Crosse to achieve any dream they desired. Sadly, Derrick passed on November 18th, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Derrick recognized the importance of providing a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for local youth. While Derrick is no longer with us, it is important to continue his vision.

Feel good knowing that all of the funds raised go right back to our Coulee Region by supporting a partnership between the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse and the Hope Lives Foundation.
