Death of local jogger spurs "Travel with Care" campaign
BENTONVILLE—A tragic accident ending with a driver hitting and killing a jogger in Rogers has spurred a response from people in the community.
The Travel With Care Campaign kicked off Saturday (April 16) and the people behind are hoping it will strike a chord with those on the roads and trails.
For Kelly Sikorski, the campaign has a personal meaning. Her sister Jennifer Bikel was the woman who was hit and killed by a vehicle while jogging on a sidewalk.
"She was my twin sister," said Sikorski, who has immersed herself in this undertaking. "The only way to really cope with the grief of losing someone like that is to figure out, how do I make her legacy live on, and turn it into a force for good."
