Zayvier's Chicken Chase is in memory of Zayvier Michael Barnes, whom we lost in November 2012 at the age of 9 following a tragic car accident. He was a caring boy with a big heart and touched many lives during his short time on earth. 

One of his favorite “holidays” was the Eleva Broiler Fest. Please join our walk/run to help keep his memory alive and to  make something good come from something bad.

  Thanks to the incredible support of many sponsors, donors and participants as well as a grant from KaBoom, the Memorial Park Renovation Project has been completed!
  Thanks to everyone who helped complete the first phase of our Memorial Park (located between First Avenue and West Stebins Street near the heart of Eleva) renovation project.  Your continued support allows us to make sure that Zayvier’s Chicken Chase is more than just a race!

Honor Your Loved One...
  Thanks to everyone who contributed and supported our efforts to complete Memorial Trail behind Eleva Lake Park!
  We are so pleased to have this new 3/4 mile trail for walking, running and snowshoeing around the Eleva Broiler Festival grounds.  The views at the top of the hill are well worth the effort to get there and there is a special spot to relax and remember with benches and a perfect spot for a picnic overlooking all of Eleva.
Projects Made Possible by Your Great Support:
  Due to the continued generosity and support of our great community, the second phase of our Memorial Park improvement project, the addition of a Zip Line to the playground, was completed in 2023.  
  Kids and kids-at-heart can now enjoy zipping through the park on our zip line!  This popular addition to our little park in the heart of town is sure to thrill and satisfy our park visitors for years to come!  Thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible!
