Upcoming on Saturday, February 23rd is our Billy Brockmueller Invitational meet at the Brown indoor track. This meet is open to runners of all ages, and we’re looking forward to high school, college, and masters athletes coming together for an exciting day of races.
This meet is named for our former teammate Billy Brockmueller, who passed away this year following a skiing accident. Billy was an outstanding runner and teammate, and in his honor, we are raising money for Simba Ministries. Simba’s mission is to promote education, health, and wellness for Kenyan youth through mission trips for college students. The organization offers education, medical, and athletic themed sponsorship for students to share their skills in Kenyan communities. In college, Billy participated in two mission trips to Kenya through the organization, in which he taught math at a school and led the construction project of a running track where young students now have a place to train and compete.
