ALL proceeds go to the VanKoeverden family. Please help support our cause to raise funds for Ana VanKoeverden who has fought cancer since she was 3 years old beginning in 2008 when her family first received news of a brain tumor. The tumor has been an ongoing fight and Ana continues this fight even harder in the last two years - during what should be her fun, high school years.

The Melby Memorial 5K race is one segment of the annual Melby Memorial Charities event. Each year this event is held to raise money for an individual or family experiencing financial hardships due to illness, unforeseen events, or other losses. The charity is a dedication to Paul Melby who died in 2011 from an un-diagnosed heart condition. Paul was an avid sports fan - particularly interested in volleyball and running. Each year we choose a person(s) that have a connection to athletics and could use help during a tough time. The event includes a silent auction, volleyball tournament, and many other festivities to raise funds for our recipient each year. Melby Memorial Charities also sponsors boys' volleyball in the Olmsted County area to continue to advance South-East, MN.
