The Colby Cheese Days Race is dedicated to the memory of Lt. Jamison Kampmeyer who was killed in the line of duty as a member of the Colby Fire Department. Jamison, 34, was a loving husband, father to 3 young boys, Firefighter, EMT, SWAT team member, and a Deputy with the Marathon County Sheriff's Dept. Jamison was also an avid runner who participated in the 10k run during Cheese Days for many years. Jamison embodied the spirit of giving in both his professional and personal life. He leaves a legacy as a dedicated public servant and true hero who touched the lives of many. Jamison is greatly missed and will never be forgotten. So to honor his legacy and remember his spirit, we Run for Jamison.
Proceeds from this year's race will be donated to the Central Fire and EMS District. The District was formed January 1, 2017 to provide fire and EMS services to the greater Abbotsford/Colby/Dorchester areas.
