About This Activity

On May 27, 2011 Lise Marie Palmer and her unborn baby, Faith, went for a run while on a family vacation.  They were tragically hit by a car and killed instantly.  Lise lived her life for God and her family; parents, Craig & Cathy, husband Ryan and sons Ray and Mac.  Lise enjoyed running and living a healthy lifestyle.  We honor her memory by doing this annual run, giving back to others as she always tried to do.  Friends and family of the Macadangdang's and Palmer's thank you in advance for your support.

"When you walk, your steps will not be hampered, when you run, you will not stumble."

Recipient:  All proceeds of the Lise and Faith Memorial Run will go to the recipients of the run, a family or person/person's in need.  We are partnered with the I.M.O. Foundation (In Memory Of), a 501c3 non-profit organization that was developed to assist men, women and children impacted by the burden of a sudden tragedy.

August 16, 2014, join us for our 4th annual run at Heritage Park Recreation Center, Puyallup WA.
