Warrior River Run

The Brainerd Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and would like to sincerely thank everyone involved in our Warrior River Run at Camp Ripley on Sept. 15th.  

The commitment to and celebration of our public schools is amazing. We would like to thank Camp Ripley for their hospitality, help with set-up, signage, marketing and participation in our 10k, 5k walk or run, and 1k kids’ run. In particular, thank you to Daniel and Stacy Bednarek, Col. Scott St. Sauver, CSM Michael Worden, Sgt. Timothy Krout, and Maj. John Donovan.

Thank you to our sponsors which included: DeWitt Martial Arts, Crystal Cleaners, Good Samaritan Society, Bernick’s, MMFCU, Blackridge Bank, Brainerd Jaycees, CTC, Lakes Printing, Minnesota Power, The Raboin Law Firm, USA Mobile Drug Testing, Remax Lakes Area Realty - Sellnow  Team, Scott Stroot & Luke Schumer - Ameriprise Financial, Weizenegger-Engel  Insurance, Winners Trophy & Engraving, Sam’s Club, and Dermatology Professionals.

In closing, thank you to all who participated, volunteered, attended and showed your support.  We appreciate each and every one of you.

All proceeds will benefit BPSF under the 4As - academics, activities, arts and athletics. The 4A grant program benefits our public schools with grants for classrooms.

We are working on next year’s date for the Warrior River Run at Camp Ripley and it’s tentatively planned for Sept. 7, 2013.  Enhancements planned will include chip timing.
