2011 Run & Walk
13th Annual Ted E. Bear Hollow 5K/10K Run & Remembrance Walk
The 13th Annual event was a success, seeing over a 40% increase in registrations and netting over $20,000 in revenue!
Both an RRCA Championship Race and a Corporate Cup qualifying race, the Ted E. Bear Hollow 5K/10K has continued to be a venue for serious and casual runners alike, while also remaining a venue for walkers to remember their loved ones.
Outback Steakhouse continued to be the starting point for the 10K, 5K and the Remembrance Walk. Starting exactly at 8:30 AM, the 10K runners ran north down the Keystone Trail, while the 5K runners, who started five minutes later, ran south down the Keystone Trail. The races were managed by the Omaha Running Club and Peak Performance.
The Remembrance Walk began at 8:40 AM and the walkers stopped at Roberts Park to take part in a variety of activities, including:
- The storytelling of Rita Paskowitz
- Chalk drawing
- Teddy bear adopting
- A memory balloon release
Upon returning, both runners and walkers could enjoy various activities, including:
- The bean bag toss
- The grief graffiti wall
- A Magician
- Outback Steakhouse Food
Coach Greg McDermott, Creighton Men's Basketball Coach, and the entire Creighton Men's Basketball Team were able to spend the morning with the crowd, walk the 5K as well as sign posters. This was the 8th year that the Creighton Men's Basketball Team has been involved.
Ted E. Bear Hollow was pleased to have Omaha's "Biggest Loser," Marty Wolff, as a guest speaker. Wolff's father died when he was six years old. After the death, Wolff became addicted to food. However, in 2006, Wolff became a contestant on the Third Season of "The Biggest Loser" and has kept off more than 125 lbs! Wolff has a wife, Amy, who was also a "Biggest Loser," and a son Blaine, who was named after his hero, his father. Now Wolff continues to help others lose weight at Reality Wellness.
Ted E. Bear Hollow would like to thank the sponsors that made this event possible!
