This year's recipient is Brooke Gulbrandson. Brooke was diagnosed with a rare bile duct cancer in January, 2021 and immediately began steps to fight this cancer including surgery and chemo. Brooke and her husband Lee have young two children, one of which is a new born. Please help support our cause to raise funds for the Gulbrandson family during this extremely tough time.
The Melby Memorial 5K race is one segment of the annual Melby Memorial Charities event. Each year this event is held to raise money for an individual or family experiencing financial hardships due to illness, unforeseen events, or other losses. The charity is a dedication to Paul Melby who died in 2011 from an un-diagnosed heart condition. Paul was an avid sports fan - particularly interested in volleyball and running. Each year we choose a person(s) that have a connection to athletics and could use help during a tough time. The event also includes a silent auction, volleyball tournament, and many other festivities at WildWood Bar to raise funds for our recipient each year. Melby Memorial Charities also sponsors boys' volleyball in the Olmsted County area to continue to advance South-East, MN.
