INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) -Terre Haute' Eva Kor will serve as the pacesetter for the 2019 OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.
Officials say the 84-year-old Holocaust survivor was chosen because she exemplifies the triumph of the human spirit.
Organizers hope she will inspire people to register for the race.
On Wednesday morning, a group of her biggest supporters called 'Team Eva' will run the 13.1-mile course as a relay with Eva as the anchor.
Team Eva's time will be the time to beat.
For every participant that finishes faster than Team Eva, the 500 Festival will donate $1 to the Candles Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute.
