ELEVA, Wis. (WEAU)-- A large donation was made in the memory of an Eleva boy who passed away last year.
In November 2012, a driver lost control on Highway 93 and crashed into the Barnes family's car. Nine-year-old Zayvier Barnes died following the crash. The family decided to start a fund in honor of Zayvier.
On Thursday, the organizers gave a check for $10,000 to the Playground Project at the Eleva Intermediate School.
The money was raised this summer during Zayvier's Chicken Chase, a run/walk that was held as part of the Eleva Broiler Fest.
