Brett’s Run 2015!

Please save this date: August 15, 2015. We had to move up the date of the walk/ run by a week this year because Legion Memorial Park is scheduled to undergo some major renovations beginning on Monday of the following week.
There is now a Facebook site specifically dedicated to this event. You do not have to have a Facebook account to access this information. To view the Facebook page click:  https://www.facebook.com/BrettJensenMemorialScholarship

All of the information needed to register for the walk/run will continue to be on this site as well as the Facebook site. Registration information and access will come out sometime in April.
There are also some great pictures on this site under “Gallery” of last August’s walk and run taken by Don and Liz Healy.  Find the pictures on the Facebook page by going to the “Photos” page.

We will continue to give you updates as time goes on. Also, we appreciate so much your continued support of the Brett Jensen Memorial Scholarship Foundation.

Grateful thanks for making walk/run a success


As seen in The Herald, August 30, 2014

Last Saturday, Aug. 23, The Brett Jensen Memorial Walk and Run 6 was held at Legion Memorial Park in north Everett. On a perfectly clear, beautiful morning, a record crowd turned out to remember Brett and help raise some funds for his scholarship foundation. Over the last 11 years, the foundation has awarded nearly $100,000 to high school seniors through the Everett Rotary Club and Cascade High School.

There are so many groups and individuals who deserve our thanks for their support, generosity and participation: The city of Everett, the Everett Parks and Recreation Department, the Brett Jensen Committee members, friends, family, business sponsors, the Cascade High School sports teams, and the Alverson and Grand neighborhoods. Also, thanks to all those individuals and businesses who donated items to the very successful silent auction.

We would have liked to have said hello, shook the hand, or given a hug to everyone who took the time and effort to be there on Saturday. Please know that we felt your love and appreciated your presence.

Please visit our website at brettjensen.wordpress.com to learn much more about the scholarship program and the walk and run.

Thanks for an amazing day!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Brett’s Run!  We try to say hi to everyone and feel badly that there were people there who we didn’t get a chance to say hello to, shake their hand or give them a hug, but we are aware of their presence and truly appreciate the support from each and every one of you.  We are still going through the numbers, but we know we set an attendance record. It was  an amazing day with great people!
