Shelli Huether Honor Run, Walk, and FundraiserNovember 20 - 22, 2021
Letter from the Race Director
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, is to honor my amazing friend…while raising money for a couple of different charities in her name.
The inaugural 2020 event took place November 21-23, 2020. The 2nd annual race will take place November 20-22, 2021. More info on the 2021 run, walk, and fundraiser will appear here as the event is planned.
Race Director (and a great friend of Shelli’s)
I’m very grateful for News 4 Nashville who came out to interview me for the 2020 event so that they could create a news story. They put together a powerful piece.
