Fun Run funds to honor slain sisters

  • May 25, 2013 - 3:43 PM

Registrations are now being accepted for the Tri-Angels 5K Fun Run, an event that will raise funds toward construction of a universally accessible playground in honor of Amara, Sophie and Cecilia Schaffhausen. The sisters, ages, 11, 8 and 5, respectively, were murdered last year at their River Falls home.

The run/walk will be held July 20 at Hoffman Park in River Falls. Registration is available at RunningRoom.com. The cost is $30 for adults and $10 for children 14 and younger. Race day registration, beginning at 7 a.m., is $35 for adults and $15 for children.

Proceeds from the event will be used for development of Tri-Angels Playground through the nonprofit group Unlimited Play in Hoffman Park in River Falls. There will be concessions, vendors, massages and a concert after the race, which starts and ends at Hoffman Park.

For more information, e-mail triangels5krun@gmail.com or call 715-441-6175 or 715-523-9677.
