It’s been a busy summer getting ready for another wonderful Regatta Run- this year, our 10th Annual! The sponsorship drive has been very successful and for that, I thank our very generous and community-minded Tualatin. I am honored to be a part of the Event Team who puts on this event to honor and remember Cpl. Matthew Lembke. Sometimes people ask, “Who is the Event Team?” We are a small but fierce (just kidding- persistent, but not really fierce) group of people who put this event together, and with the addition of sometimes 1-2 friends or family members of the Lembkes- we also review and select the Corporal Matthew Lembke Memorial Scholarship recipients in the spring.
Here we are:
Dale & Claudia & Carolyn Lembke
Kathy Hollamon: Event Coordinator
Debbie Dehler: Course Route Master
Celia Perkins: Race Starter
We have also had a great Title Sponsor, Jonathan Crane with Integrity Staffing, whose business and professional opinions have been very helpful, and this year we’ve been fortunate to have a Co-Title Sponsor, C & C Trucking, out of Texas. There are a long list of sponsors this year under our 2018 Sponsors page. Please help support them by giving them your business!
Without the continuing support of Tualatin and the surrounding communities, we would not have been able to help college dreams come true for the more than 60 scholarship recipients since the scholarship fund began. This is an event that I love, and it is a privilege and an honor to help remember Matt Lembke in this way. Our success, however, is not our own. It is your’s too. Thank you- to all of our sponsors, participants, volunteers, and the people who just come out on this very special Saturday in October to remember one of our own fallen, Corporal Matthew Lembke. And with that, lace up those walking or running shoes and get going- race day is less than 2 months away! Register now at regattarun.com
