“I thought the race was amazing again. I was able to set a new PR for the 10K and beat my time from last year. The turnout was wonderful and it is such an emotional and amazing event. Great job!”

“It was a beautiful race and very nice tribute.”

“Thanks for giving me a chance to honor my daughter.  I ran with tears for the last mile but with a wonderful feeling of her keeping me strong.”

“Great race, such a wonderful cause and so well organized.”

“It was a great event!  Thanks for letting us join you!  We met some great people.”

“I love the keychain medals.  Very unique.  Great idea.  I’ll use the keychain.”

“Thanks so much for putting on such a great event”

“I hope you feel it was a great success.  You made a difference to so many.”

“Such a great race for a wonderful cause!  I beat my best time by 4 minutes!  Thanks for the great training Coach Lora Erickson!”

“It was really wonderful seeing families rallying together. I think you do a huge service to the healing of people who have lost someone by hosting this race. I saw everything from people honoring grandparents to people honoring lost children. I know it takes a lot to put yourself out there like this and say to everyone “I’ve lost a child and it’s a hard thing to go through and live with” but by doing it, you show others how to honor a loved one while moving forward with your life. Even though I often think of a close friend who unexpectedly died a year and a half ago, it certainly made me smile and think of him on Saturday and send love his way. I would be honored to help out again and hopefully run next year. Congrats on a really well done race!!”

“Today was wonderful!  Thanks for putting it all together.  It was a great way for us to remember our daughter and for our family to remember our daughter as well.”


Please join us next year on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014.  We are adding a 5K run to the 10K run and 2 mile walk.  www.RaceForGrief.com
