Loveland, Ohio – After overnight rain, late Saturday morning turned perfect for the 12th running of the Captain Seth Mitchell Hero 5K from Loveland’s Nisbet Park.
In this video, you will hear from one of Seth’s closest Loveland High School friends, Greg Carpinello, one of the classmates who organizes the walk/run to raise scholarship dollars for Loveland High School graduates. The event is also and perhaps most importantly, a day to keep the memory of Mitchell alive and the spirit of service that defined his life. Seth’s life was cut short when he died in a helicopter crash in a mission he volunteered for while serving in Afghanistan.
Seth’s father, Steve, introduced Tara Schamel the mother of Madeline Schamel. Tara reads a note to the racers from Natti that told the story of how grateful she was for being awarded a scholarship and what Seth’s legacy means to her.
