Sena was the victim of domestic homicide in 2009. She was a shining light with a passionate heart. Her life was violently cut short by her husband, but her spirit will live on through all those who loved her. This event is a way to represent hope for other victims and inspire courage in us all to stand up against domestic violence. We love you Sena and your memory lives on. —The Hanson Family.

This is a non-competitive, kid and pet friendly event. Running times will not be tracked or posted.

Proceeds will be used to help survivors of domestic abuse in Allamakee, Bremer, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties.
