Candlelight vigil set for Saturday, Nov. 17 to honor Jed

BIR will host a candlelight vigil from 3-8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 to memorialize owner Jed Copham, who passed away Sunday after a swimming accident in Florida. The vigil is open to the public and is a chance to share stories about Jed or to just find comfort in the presence of the racing community and those who found joy in knowing Jed. Bring your own candles. If you can’t make it to the vigil, there’s a special Facebook page called Jed Copham Memorial Page for those who want to share photos, videos and stories about Jed. BIR and the Copham family appreciate the outpouring of love and support that the racing community and the Brainerd Lakes Area has shown during this difficult time.
