Next week marks one year since five people lost their lives during a charity event in Clarksville.
The group had gathered for a toy drive put on by Bikers Who Care, but while they were sleeping in a rented camper, investigators believe a generator leaked carbon monoxide inside.
The five who were lost - Tim Stone, Jim Wall, Allison Bagwell-Wyatt and Jon and Katy Over - touched the lives of many in the community, who lined Madison Street to show their support.
Now there's an effort under way to make sure their memory is never forgotten.
As the time for the annual Toy Run at the Clarksville Speedway rolls around again this weekend, it comes with a year of changes.
With the support of the BWC and family members of those lost, Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a law requiring those renting an RV to acknowledge the vehicle has a working carbon monoxide detector.
BWC Director Bill Langford said that is not the end of the precautions.
"We're going to do our own patrol out there when the trailers come in. We're going to give them all a pamphlet to tell them what they need to have. And we're going to have a couple of guys - they're not inspectors, but they're just going to give a rough look and make sure the situation's safe," he said.
With a special memorial ceremony planned to honor the five who passed scheduled for Tuesday, Langford said the Toy Run moving forward honors the charitable spirit of five people deeply missed.
