Reindeer Run Stuff - We planned to post a Reindeer Run press release here, but we couldn't open the file that Mare ("Mare" is Marilyn Franzen, the totally wonderful founder and director of the RR) sent us.

If you're not registered, then this info should instill within you a genuine burning NEED to sign-up at your earliest opportunity. It's totally true. This is the event that put the "Fun" in Fun Run.

MMA History - Great sons and daughters. Great citizens. Great people. And, oh yeah, great athletes, too.
These descriptions certainly apply to each and every Minnesota Junior of the Year. Any parent would be proud to claim any one of these kids, though most of them are not kids anymore. All have gone on to college, where they have excelled, or in the case of 2009 JOY Nick Madrinich and three-time award winner Michael Williams, are currently excelling.
Minnesota's most successful Junior was Beth Zirbes, who won the award an unprecedented four times. Beth was and is an amazing individual. An effervescent fast-talker, she is genius-bright, gregarious and energetic. And wise, too. Note ...
