About This Activity

Lois Ann Veitenheimer Luig was an avid walker and runner who was always adamant about health and nutrition. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, favorite aunt, great aunt and wonderful friend. She loved to travel, and was always the planner of get-togethers. She loved life and all that it offered.

Her time with us tragically ended on January 3, 2013 while walking in the early morning with a friend. Her favorite phrase was, “If I can do it, you can do it.”  She never let anyone use excuses not to get in shape.

This is our fourth year to organize this health walk/run in Windthorst in her memory as it would have been her birthday on November 4th. At the beginning, we wanted to honor her passing by organizing this race FOR her. Then we were reminded that Lois would never want us to do something for her. So, we decided to do the planning, organizing and running WITH her.

All proceeds from this run will be used to create scholarships for graduating seniors from high school or any full-time student currently enrolled in college.  All scholarships applicants must participate in the event.  Please check the Facebook page for the application and information.

If you plan to do your packet pick-up on the morning of the race, please show up early.
