Last year’s run raised more than $25,000 to build a memorial to honor the victims of the March 22, 2017 shooting. The memorial is scheduled to be installed in the spring of 2019 as a continued tribute to the four heroes who lost their lives that tragic day.

Wausau Metro Strong is proudly continuing the event to carry on their memory. Wausau Metro Strong’s mission is making a safer community for all in the greater Wausau area.
