How much does the run/walk cost? Thanks to Central Oregon Running Klub, Footzone, and a few great friends – there is no cost for participating in the event. There will be an opportunity to donate to the Hospice House of Bend, but the donation is entirely optional.
Why is this event in honor of Johanna Olson? Many people within Central Oregon have been asking if there would be a memorial for Johanna Olson in Bend. The “celebration” events for this weekend were organized to be most representative of Johanna – all about being active, bringing great people together, and enjoying life. You don’t have to have known Johanna to participate. She loved creating new relationships for people, and would want you out there as a part of this, so please come on out.
