Dear Community Member,
The Stephen Ojalvo Fund and the Minnesota Distance Running Association are excited to offer free entries to the children of the Webber Camden community to participate in the Victory Kids Lap at no cost. The Minnesota Distance Running Association has been organizing the Victory Labor Day Races at Webber Park for 36 years. This year’s event is September 3rd.
The Stephen Ojalvo Fund was established by MDRA and the Ojalvo Family in memory of MDRA Member, Stephen Ojalvo, who passed away suddenly last winter. It was created to benefit those who would not otherwise be able to participate in running due to financial constraints or disability and encourage those who would otherwise face obstacles to join our community of runners. These complementary entries are open to any child in the Webber Camden neighborhood who would not otherwise have participated in the Victory Kids Lap. All children that participate will receive a complementary long-sleeved Victory Races shirt available for pick up on race morning.
iThe MDRA is looking for assistance in getting the word out to interested parents and community groups to get the children involved and registered. Ideally, we would like to issue a number of complementary registration codes with instructions that a group could be responsible for getting out to children and their parents. We would appreciate any guidance or support you could provide. We would love to see a big group of kids at this year’s races!
