Thanks to all those who participated in the 2021 race, we were able to donate $5,942.25 to the Wisconsin State Firefighter Memorial. We hope to be able to surpass that amount this year as we raise money for the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin charity which does burn camp for survivors. On behalf of the Colby Cheese Days Race committee I would like to thank you for your interest in this year’s Colby Cheese Days Race: Run for Jamison event. We hope to provide you with an event that you and your families will enjoy and that you will remember the special meaning this event holds for our community.
I am a long-time community member and when presented with this opportunity was excited to accept this challenge and take this opportunity to use my love of running to support a noble cause. Running has had a strong influence on my life since I joined the cross country team as a senior in high school. I then took a break from running during college to focus on basketball. In 2014, my good friend Amanda encouraged me to participate in the Gary Bjorklund Half Marathon and since then I have become an avid runner. Running has created a special bond with my friends and we travel to many races together and refer to ourselves as “The Rummers.” I have been a participant in multiple Cheese Days Races and I am excited to act again as the Race Director this year to help spread the joy of running and give back to the community that I call home.
