Family to Race Sunday in Memory of Their Father

A Heartland family is about to take on a challenge together. On Sunday, they will enter Papillion's 5k race.

This year, the Reyes kids, with their mom, Michelle, and their sister, Miranda, will have to do Papillion's 5k without their father, George. At just 50 years old, George Reyes died unexpectedly last month. He died while doing what he loved, running.

"We are trying to get to our new normal like everything is just so different," said Miranda.

New normal means remembering their father's sense of humor and finding parts of him within themselves. Which is why they'll complete Papillion's 5k together.
