Our 5K events are now timed.  Each participant 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. 

Each year our 5K honors and remembers a different person lost to suicide.
 For 2024, our honor walk/run is called
'Break Free 5K'


in honor of: Kevin A. Romanowski

Kevin had a beautiful smile and was a Free Spirit…a person who lived according to his own wishes and beliefs. He wore his heart on his sleeve and often put others before himself. Since Kevin was little, he enjoyed tinkering with items and always tried to figure out how to make something work better.


As he grew older, he grew an enthusiasm for firearms and wanted to patent his own. Kevin enjoyed fishing, hunting, shooting his bow, camping, tubing, bowling and roller skating. Kevin loved to listen to rock music, records, and his favorite band, Queen.


He enjoyed spending time with his friends and escaping with video games. Kevin was a history nut and could rattle off history facts like it was second hand. In high school, Kevin enjoyed being involved in Quiz Bowl.


Kevin is tremendously missed, and our hearts are forever broken. Kevin's Legacy Foundation was started in memory of Kevin: where his family & friends want to help another person feel like they matter and save a life.
