About This Activity

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.

The Joe Plant Memorial Run/Walk supports Joe’s avid love of running, with a portion of the financial proceeds benefitting those whose goal it is to serve their communities through a scholarship fund at St. Cloud State University for students in the Criminal Justice Program. New in 2016, the proceeds will also go to support Parent Heart Watch, at the national and local level. Parent Heart Watch, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is a state by state network of parents & partners solely dedicated to reducing the often disastrous effects of Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth. They inform, educate, advocate and implement programs that help achieve their mission and vision objectives.
