Miles for Amanda Memorial Walk
A memorial event and fund-raiser honoring a Dean Clinic employee who passed away unexpectedly is coming up Saturday, Sept. 10.
Registered Dietitian and Weight Management Program Manager Amanda Hellman died in January 2015 as a result of a whitewater rafting accident while on her honeymoon in Costa Rica.
Organized by a group of her coworkers, friends and loved ones, the Second Annual Miles for Amanda Memorial Walk is set from 10 a.m. to noon at McKee Farms Park, 2930 Chapel Valley Road, Fitchburg. During the walk, participants will complete a one-mile loop as many times as they like.
Registration is $10, and $6 for children 10 and younger. Registration and more information are available here through Eventbrite. There is no deadline for registration. However, those who would like an event T-shirt must sign up by Friday, Aug. 26.
Amanda was an active community volunteer in organizations including the Healthy Kids Collaborative, which strives to improve the physical activity and nutrition environment for Dane County children. Proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to the Collaborative in Amanda’s name.
Anyone unable to attend Miles for Amanda may make a donation through the Eventbrite invitation.
