'Run To Remember' September 11 Occurs Saturday
The 3rd Annual Run to Remember takes place on Saturday, Sept. 8, starting and finishing in the Wildwood Town Center Plaza.
This Run To Remember 5K Run was organized in remembrance of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001.
Metro West Fire Protection District Capt. Brad Shelton in Wildwood and founder of the run said all proceeds from this event will benefit The BackStoppers, an organization that takes care of the families of fire and police officials who lost their lives in the line of duty.
The 5K run will begin at 8:30 a.m. following a Kids Fun Run that leaves the start line at 8 a.m. Shelton said the 5K run is very unique because it takes runners through a fire house.
Pre-Race packet pick-up will be at Big River Running Company, 14059 Manchester Road, Manchester, MO, 63011, on Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., as well as on race morning at Wildwood City Hall, 183 Plaza Drive, Wildwood, MO, 63040, beginning at 7 a.m.
"It's a great run! Lace up those running shoes and come have a great time, doing a great run, for an even better purpose!" said Shelton.
