The Month of March not only represents the celebration of Xavier’s birthday but also the sixth anniversary of Xavier and Aidan’s entering into eternal life on 3/21. The 3.21 Run commemorates this date. Please join us in this community event to run the streets of Deshler, on roads they ran repeatedly over the years, in celebration of their lives. The 5K (3.1 mile) race/memorial walk will take place on March 17, 2024 and starts at 2:00 pm and begins and ends at Pirate Park with all proceeds earned going towards Wellness projects in the Patrick Henry Community. There will also be a 1 mile memorial walk for those who do not wish to participate in the timed 5K route.  Dave's Running will be facilitating chip timing technology for fast accurate results for those runners and walkers who choose to be timed. Register by March 6th to reserve your shirt and commemorative wrist-band.  Race day registration will not include a shirt. Early Packet Pickup will be available Saturday, March 16, 2024, time and location TBD. Door Prizes given to the best St. Patrick's Day Outfits in adults and children categories.
