Running, Distance running, 5K


The reason for assembling this event is to give our community the opportunity to come together on the weekend before Colton Rusk’s Angelversary. Running or walking 3.1 miles together is a small token of gratitude we can show for Colton paying the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The Rusk family generously gives out thousands of dollars in scholarships to seniors each year. 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Colton Rusk Scholarship Fund. All donations are tax deductible.

It will be a wonderful sight for the Rusk family to see the community RUN FOR REMEMBRANCE of their son they dearly miss on a very difficult weekend
