What's In A Name? Keeping Love and Memories Alive

What's in name?

Every parent who has ever named a child knows that a name is more than just the letters that make up that name. Each and
every name represents a whole person - with a unique face and other physical features, imagination, personality, love to share, and memories to make.

These are the names of loved ones whose family and friends asked that we run to remember as we trek up Pike's Peak for our annual "Run to Remember."

Join us in celebrating the love and memories that make up the names and faces of each of those we run to remember. Make your support known through your contribution to the mission of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 at "Run to Remember-Donate." Every name printed on the "Run to Remember" shirts sent to surviving family members makes these much more than just a simple t-shirt. Each name shares a unique story of love and life shared with family, friends, classmates, neighbors, and even events where paths cross with people never formally met.

If you know of other loved ones who have died in traffic incidents who you would like to be remembered as part of the "Run to Remember," please e-mail or call 402-334-1391.
