About This Activity

Thank you for wanting to participate in the 10th Annual Timo Memorial 5K Fund for Fire & Rescue.  The first nine Timo 5K's have raised a cumulative $43,000.  The goal for this 10th & Final Timo5K is to top $50,000-- and YOU are going to help accomplish that!  All proceeds are donated to Lake Monticello Volunteer & Rescue and Palmyra Volunteer Fire Company, in loving memory of my son Timo Husted Wright. 

17-year old Timo left this earth October 20.2000, dying instantly of massive head injuries in an automobile accident on Route 53 in Fluvanna County, VA.  He had just finished cross county practice at beautiful Pleasant Grove (where this event has been held since 2005) and was on his way to his after-school job just a few miles away.  When the first responders from Lake Monticello Fire & Rescue and Palmyra Fire Company arrived on the accident scene and realized there was nothing more they could do-- they DID do something.  The group of ten formed a circle around Timo's body, joined hands, and raised up prayers for Timo. his family and the community. I have never forgotten that image (could you?).  A "Circle of Love & Prayer" is held prior to the start of every Timo 5K.

This special event celebrates family, friends, community, joy of movement, and each precious day of life.  Timo's brilliant, joyful, kind, compassionate and loving spirit lives on!

Blessings to you & your family of health, happiness, gratefulness & love,

Angell Husted, Timo's Mom                                                                    Founder/Director, Timo's Memorial 5K Fund
