Dear Loveland Magazine,
I hope you are all healthy and finding your way through this unusual year of 2020. To that end the 2020 Captain Seth Mitchell Hero 5K scheduled for 10/10 in Nisbet Park will now be a VIRTUAL event to take place throughout the month of October. This means that even David Miller can now participate! We will need video proof sources, but please none of those 70’s gym shorts……………
Our local team of Damien Cook, Marisa Sobb, Mollie Schrichten and Greg Carpinello (recently moved to Portland, OR) have developed an event that should be fun for all. Additionally we have a new website and link to the event.
Thanks for the continued support for 11 years (as of October).
To review the Captain Seth Mitchell Hero 5K please link to: www.sethmitchellhero5k.org.
Thank you for any consideration of helping us to publish the event.
Father of Captain David “Seth” Mitchell May 17, 1979 – October 26, 2009
All proceeds benefit the Capt. Seth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship through Loveland Schools Foundation.
About Seth Mitchell
Captain and pilot in the United States Marine Corps and a 1997 Loveland High School graduate, was killed in action in Afghanistan in October 2009. Seth contributed greatly to the Loveland community in his youth… he served as a leader and role model on the varsity football team, was voted to be Class President his senior year, and was named “Mr. Personality” by his peers. He was well loved here. After graduating, he took that same sense of service and loyalty into all that he did: as a son, a brother, a friend, a leader in the Marines.
In other words, Seth was a hero for all.
We are a group of Seth Mitchell’s high school classmates, who miss our friend and want to keep his memory alive. We represent the many people who Seth made an impression on with his sense of humor, kind heart, and loyal friendship. As we organize this 5k Race and the scholarship memorial fund, we are motivated by one enduring inspiration: to live each day a little more honorably, kindly, and humbly… just like Seth.
