This annual event began in 2012 and transformed into A Run to Remember two years later when one of the event founders, Trish Wehling, lost her daughter, Jordan, in a car accident. All participants are invited to use the race to celebrate and honor lost friends and family, with all net proceeds benefiting the Kids Feeding Kids program.


The Heart of the City Race 501(c)(3) is a non-profit race to help the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities and Kids Feeding Kids organization.  The 5K, 10K and 15K courses are certified and run on residential streets and through the beautiful Heart of the City in Burnsville, Minnesota.  The race is always the first Saturday after Labor Day.
