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.
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 event honors and remembers a different person lost to suicide.
This year, our event is called the 'Cody Wozney 5K'
in honor of: Cody Wozney.
September 4, 1978 - June 17, 2013
This is Cody's story, as told by his family members:
On June 13, 1991, Cody Wozney came into the world. Growing up, he was a fun-loving little boy who brought joy to everyone. Throughout his childhood, he loved to play baseball, football, basketball, and other sports. Cody had a love for gardening; he spent endless hours in the garden with Grandpa Wozney. Hunting and fishing were special times for Cody and his dad. They went on yearly hunting trips and spent weekends hunting on their land near Augusta. Many trips were taken to Green Bay and Milwaukee to cheer on the Brewers and the Packers. Cody loved the Packers!!!
Grandma Wozney played a huge role in Cody's life. She instilled in him Christian values and a love for God. Cody had a deep love for his grandma, his family, and his extended family. He spent cousin-time going swimming on mini-vacations and enjoying various parties such as Olympic parties, Survivor parties, New Year's Eve Twilight Zone parties, and many Packer parties with his cousins, aunts, and uncles.
Happy times were enjoyed with his pets over the years. He was especially proud of his dog, Lucy, when she graduated from obedience school. Cody and his friends purchased a miniature horse and attempted to house the horse in Grandma Wozney's backyard. That was the one time that grandma told him "No." Cody also had some cats that he adored and were dear to his heart.
Cody will be remembered by his family and friends as the wonderful, compassionate young man that he was; we will forever cherish him in our hearts.
In Memory of Cody Bernard Wozney
