Colby Cheese Days Race

Dear Race Sponsor,

The time is upon us to get geared up for the 2020 Colby Cheese Days Race: Run for Jamison.  This is a 1-mile Kids Run, 5K Run/Walk, 10K and Jamison Kampmeyer Memorial Mile hosted on Saturday, July 20th in conjunction with Colby Cheese Days in Colby, WI.   We are so lucky to host this fun filled family event and at this time would like to afford you the opportunity, for you and your business, to help us kick off this race as a sponsor and supporter of our community.  2020 proceeds raised $2,325 towards the Central Fire & EMS District.  This is Race Director Liz and committee’s sixth year directing the race along with cooperation from the Abby/Colby Chamber.  We would like to host a great event, with your help, to honor our fallen hero Lt. Jamison Kampmeyer and his family. 

Lt. Jamison Kampmeyer 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 Jamison Kampmeyer Wisconsin State Firefighter Memorial.  This organization is dedicated to preserving the memory of firefighters who have died in the line of duty. Located in Wisconsin Rapids, the memorial provides a unique and lasting way to pay tribute to firefighters from the State of Wisconsin who have made this ultimate sacrifice.
