This run is special in so many ways. Thank you to Jill Armbrust, for coordinating this event and for sharing some special memories below....
"There are so many special memories that are tied to this event.  It is truly a wonderful experience for me to assist in getting this event off the ground and running, no pun intended, as a fund raiser for our amazing Youth Group!  The joy and the fun that results from the work put into this event is truly representative of the dancers Youth Group and the sponsors/volunteers that make it happen. Here are some 'snapshot' memories.
*The Families!  Many that come out and run together and are making this a tradition. 
*The Costumes!!  The groups of people and individuals that dress up in German attire for the run.  They bring such excitement to the event. 
*All of the Runners!  I am amazed each year by the many different reasons that people run...whether it's for fitness, for fun, for social interactions or for many other reasons...the runners always seem happy to have participated in our event."
