Dear Run for John Supporters,
On behalf of all the volunteers involved in the Run for John, I want to thank you for your past support of this great event. In the ten years that we have held the Run for John we have been able to honor the memory of John Bruner, his love for running and his faith. Due to your generosity and the generosity of others like you, the RFJ Committee has awarded over $100,000 in college scholarships and touched the lives of more than 200 college students. This would not have been possible without your kindness and support.
Recently, Greg and Margie have asked us to shift our efforts and establish an enduring legacy to John. Based on their wishes we have transitioned from the current annual run to funding an endowment at Dalton State College. The endowment will award “Run for John Memorial Scholarships” for Dalton State College rising sophomores for decades to come. As a previous supporter of the Run for John we are asking you to consider making a donation in John's name for this year's last run. Donations collected will go to the endowment and will be administered by the Dalton State Foundation.
On April 28th at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Dalton, we will have a final celebratory run rather than a sanctioned, competitive race. Doors will open at 8:00 am with the run beginning at 9:00 am. This will be an opportunity for friends to celebrate the Bruner family, their love of John and the success of the past Run for John races. All are welcome to attend, there will be no registration fee, and your attendance will help to make this a special occasion for the Bruner family. Please wear past Run For John tee shirts to recognize all the great times had over the last 10 races!
