The Brett Jensen Memorial Walk and Run 9 was held Aug. 25 at Legion Memorial Park in North Everett. The skies cleared and the smoke disappeared, which made for a wonderful gathering of family, friends, Cascade High School athletes and coaches, and community members. There were treats for the dogs, a clown for the kids, and Starbucks coffee and Top Pot doughnuts for the adults. Some participants ran, some walked, and some just hung out and visited.
We would like to sincerely thank all of the participants, the volunteers, the business sponsors, and the silent auction donors for their generosity and support of this event. Also, we appreciate the Everett Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Everett for helping make the process of putting on this event go smoothly.
All proceeds go into our scholarship fund which allows us to grant awards to deserving high school seniors to assist them in their pursuit of higher education at a vocational technical college, a community college or four-year university. These scholarships are given through Cascade High School and the Rotary Club of Everett. Since its inception, the Brett Jensen Scholarship Foundation has awarded nearly $170,000.
Please save the date, August 24, 2019, for next year’s event.
Don, Janice and Megan Jensen
