Kyle Joseph Coutu attended Tolman High School in Pawtucket Rhode Island and was very involved in sports. He captained the school’s football and wrestling teams in addition to playing on the hockey and outdoor track teams. Ever since Kyle was a freshman in high school, he had the aspiration of entering the Marines, and a week upon graduating in 2009, he enlisted. A month prior to going overseas, he visited the school in uniform to say good-bye. Kyle Coutu was killed in combat on February 17, 2010 in Afghanistan at the age of twenty.
We feel it is important to support our fallen troops; especially those from our small home town. It is for this reason that we are honored to support the Kyle Coutu 5k race as a Bronze Sponsor. In addition to being a sponsor, we will be having casual Friday’s here at Loiselle Agency throughout the month of April in an effort to raise an even larger donation and get everybody involved. The road race was started by Kyle’s mother, as a way to keep her son’s memory alive. All the money raised by the race will be used to fund scholarships for local public high school students.
The Fourth Annual Kyle Coutu 5k Run is set to take place on Sunday June 1, 2014 at 9:00 A.M. Participants will meet at Slater Memorial Park which can be found at the address 449 Newport Avenue in Pawtucket Rhode Island. Those who would like to take part are asked to Register for the Race by Friday May 30, 2014 by 11:23 P.M. Come run or walk with the staff from Loiselle Insurance and help raise awareness and money for such a worthy cause.
