*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.


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!
