Lisa’s Faith and Fitness Trail
Immanuel United Church of Christ, Lafayette, IN 47905
Lisa’s Faith and Fitness Trail, a 0.41-mile paved path that circles Immanuel and runs along the edges of the church property, just off South 18th Street. The trail is in honor of Lisa Strueh, a McCutcheon High School and Purdue graduate killed by an impaired driver in April 2016. Strueh, who grew up in the Immanuel United Church of Christ congregation, had been on her way to her home in Avon from a shift at Community Hospital East in Indianapolis. She was 26, a former cross country runner at McCutcheon who ran half-marathons, ending each one with a thumbs-up photo. The trail includes a mix of fitness stations and spots for reflection, open dawn to dusk.
