Ruby-Ann Rose Milliken died in a car wreck on 11-3-2013. Her classmates started this event the following summer as a fundraiser for their class. We are attempting to keep the tradition going. Each of the previous two runs had over 350 participants.
The proceeds have been gifted to the local churches and other organizations with an emphasis towards the youth of each.
Included with your entry fee:
– “Participation” medals for each finisher.
– 1st, 2nd & 3rd place medals for each of the age and gender classes.
– Free biscuit & gravy breakfast served up by the St. Joseph’s Knights of Columbus.
– Pre-run blessing by Father Quentin Schmidt.
This year we’d like to change the format a bit. Instead of dedicating the event solely to Ruby-Ann, we’d like to make it more of a personal experience for you. We plan to have something, like a big whiteboard, for you to write the name(s) of your loved one you are participating in memory of. Also, on the t-shirts, we allowed a space for you to write the name(s) of whoever it is you’d like to “remember”. We’d like to allow you to make this a memorial tribute to those you’ve loved and lost.
The course takes you through the streets of Waverly past many places that were significant to Ruby-Ann. There are many turns and very few straights that are more than 1/4 of a mile long. A big portion of the course is shaded. There is little gravel and what there is is solid. There are 3 water stations along the way.
The course starts and ends in the Park. Packet pick-up begins at 6:30 or before. There is a pavillion with plenty of picnic tables to sit at. There’s a playground for the little ones and plenty of shade. Restrooms are available. After the run, awards will be presented in the park as well.
We hope you’ll come and enjoy a unique course and the friendship that abounds with this event!
