In the first two years - the Run to Remember has raised more than $35,000. The first year of the run raised enough money to fully fund a memorial to honor the victims of the March 22, 2017 shooting. The memorial was placed and dedicated in mid-October - as a permanent fixture in our community. Runners will be able to race past the memorial in March 2020 as we continue this tradition and celebration of four amazing lives - Sara Quirt Sann, Det. Jason Weiland, Karen Barclay and Dianne Look.
Wausau Metro Strong is proudly continuing the event to carry on their memory. Wausau Metro Strong’s mission is making a safer community for all in the greater Wausau area.
The course for the race will begin and end near the DC Everest Junior High and run through the streets of Weston.
