Memory Wall  


Because suicide has effected many of us, we have decided to do something extra special on race day.

MEMORY WALL - We will have a large board on display at the event. Feel free to bring pictures or any memorabilia of a lost loved one and post them on the board before the run. After the run, you can take the item back with you.

If you would like the name of your lost loved one added to this page, please email us (rmnesbit@mchsi.com) with the name, town and date of loss for the person.
