"I am running in honor of my aunt, Kris Huemoeller, who is currently under going cancer treatment in Fergus falls. One of her daughters, Teri Axness, is an RN at Lake Region Hospital and is also running. Tami Huemoeller, another daughter, is also running. We are called KRISTeam. There will be a large group of runners and walkers for this event. We special ordered t-shirts; 86 people bought. Not all will walk or run but it's a family honoring one special person." —Karen

"My name us Tammy Guderian. My beautiful Anishinaabe Grandfather was a 6 time trophy winner from 1938-1941 at Flandreau Indian school in South Dakota. He was and still is my Hero! I'm doing this in honor of my Grandfather. 'I will soar with the Eagles for you'. I am a first time runner, or at least since Jr. High. I don't expect to impress, just honor my Hero." —Tammy Guderian
