Another successful Regatta Run!
These two men were from an organization called Link Up Vets, who help support our Veterans. Mike, the one on the right, actually served with Cpl. Lembke in Iraq on their first tour. It is amazing how far-reaching this Run is. Thanks for all of the stories.
Thanks to all of you who came out despite the weather and helped us to honor and remember Corporal Matthew Lembke. The weather actually held off, and people didn’t get too wet or cold. Special thanks to Freeze Frame Photography for their photos, which can be seen here. You can download them for FREE! Thank you to all of our Sponsors, listed here. Thank you to all of you who travelled from far away to remember Matt, raise some funds for college scholarships in his name, and who had patience with us as we made adjustments to the event based on the weather. Thank you to John Erickson for MC’ing the event, and thank you to the Tualatin High School Crimsonnaires for singing the National Anthem. Thanks to the Young Marines, for their Color Guard, Iwo Jima Tribute, and their help throughout the event. Thank you to the City of Tualatin workers who cleared out all of the picnic tables when we heard the forecast so that we could fit under cover. Thank you to all of our Volunteers, including the VFW who help make this a great event.
Thank you for supporting the Cpl. Matthew Lembke Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The race was created in honor of Corporal Matthew Lembke, who lost his life from wounds sustained on his third tour of duty in the Middle East. To celebrate Matt’s character and service, a scholarship fund has been created in his name. 100% of the proceeds from the Regatta Run go into the scholarship fund.
