The 10th annual event takes place September 7, 2013
What is the Run to Remember?
The event atmosphere is one of celebration and includes a 5K, an after-party with a concert, and a special sky lantern conclusion.
It’s not just a race... It’s also a way to remember family and friends!
Run to Remember began with the family and friends of Nancy Horn — a loving wife and mother —as a tribute to her exceptional view on physical fitness after she lost her battle with brain cancer in 2003. The first year was such a success, the Horn family invited others to nominate a loved one to be a Run to Remember honoree. Today, the event has expanded to celebrate the lives of almost three dozen individuals.
It’s not just a race... It’s also for a good cause!
The legacy of the Run to Remember honorees lives on through the Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation Playground Fund. During its nine-year existence, Run to Remember has raised more than $62,500. These funds helped to complete the Beech Acres Park All-Children’s Playground, the Laverty Park Playground, and future proceeds will benefit other Park District playgrounds, including Juilfs Park.
There will always be a need to enhance the playgrounds in the Anderson Township Park District’s parks, just as there will always be children in the Anderson Township community in need of fun and safe places to play!
