Brett’s Run is a wonderful way to remember him, have fun, and raise money to continue his scholarship.  Registration is open to anyone who wishes to support the purpose and or philosophy* of this event.

*Philosophy: In order to honor the intent of this occasion, not to burden anyone, and keep the nature pure, this event will be kept simple so as to make it a meaningful experience for all who knew Brett and wish to participate in helping keep his memory alive.

CARPE DIEM!

The purpose of this non-competitive run/walk is four fold:  

  1. To keep Brett’s memory alive
  2. To emphasize health and fitness
  3. To raise money to continue the Brett Akio Jensen Memorial Scholarship Fund (in ten years, over $100,000 has been given to deserving Everett area students)
  4. To have fun and enjoy each other!

To register:   Go directly to BRETT’S RUN/WALK REGISTRATION or click on the Brett’s Run menu link at the top of the page.
