On September 8, 2020, Lieutenant Colonel Shelli Huether and two fellow Tennessee Air National Guard members (Captain Jessica Wright and Senior Master Sargent Scott Bumpus) were involved in a fatal plane crash near the Warren County Memorial Airport in McMinnville, TN. Their current assignment was with the 118th Wing in Nashville, TN which specializes in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR).
Shelli is a dear friend of mine and while on this earth, she had a servant’s heart and spent countless hours volunteering with the USO, Operation Stand Down, and many other charities and non-profit organizations. She also loved to run and pushed herself hard…always setting new running goals to accomplish. It’s one of the reasons why we became such great friends.
My goal with setting up this race & fundraiser, is to honor my amazing friend AND ALL MILITARY AND VETERANS…while raising money for a couple of incredible charities in her name. The inaugural 2020 event took place November 21-23, 2020.
