BENEFITING: WILLIAM HOWARD WARNEKE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Feb 02, 2016
Billy's mom, Kathie is running the Arizona Rock 'n Roll Marathon (26.2 miles!) to honor her fallen hero son and to raise awareness of the foundation created in his memory. It was because of the tragedy of the Yarnell Fire that encouraged Kathie to pick up the sport of running and this is her longest race to date! What started out as a hobby in the wake of the fire, has turned into a devout dedication to promote the William Howard Warneke Memorial Foundation. The WHWMF is dedicated to supporting first responders, fire-rescue departments and military families. With the first crowd rise fundraiser, the WHWMF was able to make a large donation to a mountain rescue unit in Billy's hometown. Thank you for your support! Best of luck, Kathie!
