Mike Jensen Memorial Run/Walk proceeds went to Willow Center for Grieving Children

Mike Jensen Memorial Run/Walk proceeds went to Willow Center for Grieving Children
LEWISTON, ID - The valley had yet another opportunity to show support for it's community and did so this past weekend.

Kiwanis Park was the site for the Mike Jensen Memorial Run and Walk last Saturday where athletes and supporters came out to give back.

The event is dedicated to Mike Jensen, who unfortunately drowned in 2005. Every year since, the memorial event has brought out many people in an effort to raise money for scholarship funds and other charitable groups as well. Despite a lower turn-out than past years, Mike's father, Bill is still grateful to those who did show and where proceeds go.

"A lot of new people here today, and that's what's good, you know?" said Bill Jensen. "We appreciate the people that did show up and that, and that's fine. The money now goes to the Willow Center for Grieving Children. It's a good program, and they do a lot for the children and I'm happy to support that."

A big thank you to everyone who came out to help make this event yet another successful one!
