The three-race series commemorates Gabe Zimmerman, a Tucson native who lost his life in the January 2011 shooting here in Tucson. As we all know, running shows us the power within ourselves. If we can walk or run three miles on a hot summer night, the ups and downs of daily life are certainly manageable.  If we can run and walk the hills of our beautiful desert, we can rise to our other challenges.  Our goal is to celebrate Gabe and motivate the community to aspire to individual and collective greatness – to work alone and work with others towards those goals we find valuable. . . . to celebrate living, community, and good will . . . to live with love, to live with passion to chase dreams.

Gabe and his dad, Ross Zimmerman
