What is the Gabe Zimmerman Triple Crown?
The three-race series commemorates Gabe Zimmerman, a Tucson native who lost his life in the January 2011 shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords here in Tucson. As we all know, running shows us the power within ourselves. If we can go three miles in a hot summer night or slog our way up and down the hills of the Tucson mountains, the ups and downs of daily life are certainly manageable and we can rise to our other challenges.
Special thanks to the thanks to the 5,500+ registrations that have been part of the Triple Crown these past few years!!
Our goal is to celebrate Gabe and motivate the community to aspire to individual and collective greatness – to work alone and work with others towards those goals we find valuable. To celebrate living, community, and good will. To live with love, to live with passion, to chase dreams . . . .
