Mini Donut 5K
The 5K Honor Walk/Run begins each year at 10:00 am in Trempealeau. The start line is right outside of the Historic Trempealeau Hotel: 150 Main Street, Trempealeau, WI 54661. We have an aid station halfway through the route of the 5K, (at the turn-around point). The aid station is being sponsored by the Ryan Goede family and will provide water to all participants. To see a map of the 5K route, and for much more information, check out the race details page by clicking here. To register for the 5K, click here.
Our 5K events are now timed, which means that everyone who registers and participates will receive a race bib, a high quality technical event shirt, and a medal. We will also be giving out special prizes to the 1st place male and female finishers, not to mention a celebration of life party after the event with coffee, donuts, live music, photos, and much more!
Each year our 5K honors and remembers a different person lost to suicide.
For 2023, our honor walk/run is called
'Your Face 5K'
in honor of: Sydney Becker
Sydney was a friend to everyone she met. She always had a sparkle in her eye and a smile on her face. There was never a dull moment when Sydney was around, her quick wit brought lots of laughs to all. She always had a kind place in her heart for all walks of life and would go out of her way to help and support anyone in any way possible.
As a child, Sydney was full of sunshine and filling loving moments. She was the best big sister to Claire. Sydney was the proud daughter of Marty and Amy. She had a large family that she loved and that loved her very much. Sydney had many 'aunties' who helped bring her up and friends that shared in so many fun memories.
While in high school, Sydney was involved in many things. She was an active member of Mock Trial, Cross Country and Track and Field. Sydney's determination, will, and strength while running was second to none- she was tough as nails, and you never counted her out. Sydney was outgoing, excited, charismatic, positive and so very funny! She ruled the Melrose-Mindoro student section; she will forever lead the Mustang fans!
Sydney attended UW-Milwaukee and enjoyed the city life. During her years in the city, she grew stronger in her beliefs and was an advocate for social justice. Sydney was already making a big impact in this world.
To know Sydney was to love her. She will be missed tremendously, and our hearts are forever broken over the loss of someone so special.
In Memory of Sydney Becker
