Calling all runners and walkers! It’s time to lace up! On Saturday, November 15, 2014 the 2nd Annual JenAbby Memorial Run will be held in Wauseon, OH at North Clinton Mennonite Church.

Two weeks before Christmas in 2010, Doug Yoder, his wife (Jennifer), and their 10 year old daughter (Abigail) were involved in a car accident while on their way to do Christmas shopping in Toledo. The accident claimed the lives of Jennifer and Abigail. Soon after the accident, Doug’s pastor expressed a desire to run a marathon with Doug, much like the marathon of grief experienced with loosing these loved ones. The first JenAbby Memorial Run took place in November of 2013 and included a full marathon. Doug and his pastor ran this marathon together. The JenAbby Memorial Run is is an even to commemorate the lives of Jen and Abby, whose birthdays are on November 16 and November 14. It is also a chance for people to encourage one another to press on for the ultimate prize, eternal life with God, the creator of the heavens and earth.
