Regatta Run 2013 is over!

Regatta Run 2013 is over, and we owe all of you a big THANK YOU for making it a success!  We had 408 registered, which is a few more than last year.  We couldn’t have done it all without you- sponsors, participants, volunteers, and raffle prize donors.  On behalf of all of the event team, including the Lembke family, thank you.


We will be back again next year- and welcome your feedback on making the event better.  If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Regatta Run 2014, or giving us feedback about this year’s event, please email event coordinator, Kathy Hollamon, at  Next year, we will again offer different sponsorship levels and will continue marketing through our Facebook Page.  ”Like” us, “Share” us, and help us spread the word about this great event!  We will be looking for other avenues to expand the marketing of our event in the future. If you are interested in helping us with this, email event coordinator at the email address above.

The race was created in honor of Corporal Matthew Lembke, who lost his life from wounds sustained on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan.  To celebrate Matt’s character and service, a scholarship fund has been created in his name.  Scholarship applications will be available for graduating Tualatin seniors this winter in the Tualatin High Counseling Office and will be due in early April.

Thank you again for helping make this year’s Regatta Run a huge success! We couldn’t have done it without all of the sponsors and community support.  What a great way to honor and remember Matt.  It is a shared success by all involved- sponsors, participants, volunteers, event team.

We especially want to thank Joseph and Rachel Konty, who donated the music and photography services for this year’s event.  They will be posting them on their website soon, and they will be available for free downloads from there.  We will let you know when they are posted on Konty Enterprises, Inc.
