Professionally timed with individual posted results!

Family Friendly/Pet Friendly

This event is a special occasion to be inspired every step of the way by Joe's commitment to strength and endurance, his love of life and service to others. Joe was famous for saying he was just "Living the Dream", and achieved his dream of becoming a St. Paul Police Officer shortly before passing away suddenly in January 2008. Joe grew up on the east side of St. Paul, and spent many hours running around Lake Phalen with his good friend Joel, who founded the event in his honor.
The Joe Plant Memorial Run/Walk not only supports Joe’s avid love of running, but the dreams of those whose goal it is to serve their communities. The net proceeds from the event go to the Joseph E. Plant Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. Cloud State University. This scholarship is for students in the Criminal Justice program who are pursuing their own dream of becoming a police officer.
