On March 15, Bakers Corner in Ponchatoula will host the first annual "Go Joe Run." Everyone is invited to participate. Joe was 13-years-old and at- tended John Curtis School in Metairie. On Nov 4 his dad dropped him off at school like any other day. Moments later Joe went behind the gym and shot himself in the head for no apparent reason. Joe had a good life, a close and lov- ing family, lots and lots of friends. He played all sports and played them well. He was always joking and laughing and was known as happy-go-lucky. He never had any mental problems that anyone knew of. His death was and still is a shock to anyone who knew Joe. This bike run will be to benefit Jane and Dwight Lynn to help with the hospital bills for keeping their son Joe Lynn on life sup- port while all of his organs were placed with people in need (A 52- year-old Ponchatoula man received Joe's heart), a scholarship fund in his name, Mike Miley Athletic playground where Joe played sports his entire life, LOPA who placed all of Joe's organs, and to teen suicide awareness. Registration will start at 9 am and the run will start at 11 am. Riders cost is $15 and $20 for a couple. Non-riders are invited to participate also paying $5 for a Jambalaya plate.
