MILLEDGEVILLE – A 5K run/walk will take place July 12 in memory of a 5-month-old girl who passed away suddenly last year.

Proceeds from the 5K will benefit construction of a new playground at Milledgeville Elementary School, where Ivy’s sisters, Lili and June, and other local children will play.

The run/walk will start at 5 p.m. at Milledgeville High School, 100 E. Eighth St., and end at the Milledgeville Men’s Club, 204 N. Main Ave. After the 5K, there will be a silent auction with a dinner and live music at the club.

The entry fee is $20. Registration forms are available at “The Ivy Faith Drinkall 5K” Facebook page, or by calling Jen Drinkall at 480-993-5874. To donate silent auction items, call Jenny Jakobs at 815-718-3200. Items for bidding can be seen at the Facebook page. Visit to make monetary donations.
