MADISON (WKOW) -- Organizers have announced new plans for the annual event held in honor of murder victim Brittany Zimmerman.
On April 2, 2008, the 21-year-old UW-Madison junior from Marshfield was murdered in her campus-area apartment. Her killer is still at large.
In 2009 Brittany's family, UW-Madison Police and Madison Area Crime Stoppers founded the Brittany Zimmermann 5K Run/Walk to raise awareness about her unsolved case and to promote crime prevention throughout the Madison area.
This fall the renamed, third annual Brittany Run/Brittany Zimmermann 5K Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29, starting at 9 a.m. at the university's Lot 60, located on the west end of campus across from the McClimon Soccer Complex and the Goodman Diamond. Parking in the lot will be free.
In the first two years, the event started at Library Mall and Memorial Union, but due to the major construction projects in that area, the route was relocated.
The entry fee is $25 until Tuesday, Sept. 25, and $30 for late registration or registering on the day of the event.
All proceeds go to support Madison Area Crime Stoppers activities on campus and throughout Dane County.
