About the event... it's a walk, a tribute, and a fundraiser
Formerly known as the Run to Remember, Celebration to Remember provides the community with an opportunity to personally honor the life of a loved one, and create a legacy in their memory through fund raising for the Anderson Foundation for Parks & Recreation Playground Fund.
The event commemorates the lives of nominated individuals (also known as "Event Honorees"). Celebration to Remember features a walk through Beech Acres Park and a celebration with live music, food, and a special conclusion.
This special event began with the family and friends of Nancy Horn – a loving wife and mother – after she lost her battle with brain cancer in 2003. After the first year, the Horn family invited others to nominate a loved one to be honored at this event. Today, the event has grown to celebrate almost three dozen individuals.
The legacy of the Celebration to Remember honorees lives on through the Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation Playground Fund. During its ten-year existence, this event has raised more than $77,000. These funds helped complete the playgrounds at Beech Acres Park, Juilfs Park (phases one and two), and Laverty Park. Future proceeds will benefit other park district playgrounds.
