Hundreds gathered today to honor US Army Reserve member Joshua Harvlerson ,who's life was cut short three years ago. While doing something he loved, they raised hundreds in scholarship money.

Money raised will go to the Joshua Halverson memorial fund.

Joshua was killed three years ago in a car wreck while on his way to Fort McCoy for a drill. His death inspired his best friend, Brandon Kliest, to establish a fund in his name. One way Kliest thought he could do so is by inviting people to do the what Josh loved doing the most; ice fishing.

Today more than 300 people gathered to support the good cause, raising already more than last year's amount. After just two years, two 500 dollar scholarships were awarded to students at Portage high school.

“This is to show people who didn't know Josh how big of an Impact he was in every body's life,” said event organizer, Brandon Kliest.
