The 41st Annual Rittner Run Date: August 12, 2024.

Every August, the Fund hosts its annual Rittner Run both to remember Fred and to raise money in support of the Fund. We make the trek to Fryeburg, Maine, where Fred’s family used to vacation during the summers. Relay style, the group negotiates the 75 miles back to Camp Pemi. The route, over the Kancamagus Highway, through Lincoln, over the shoulder of Mt. Moosilauke, through Warren, and back to Pemi, is both scenic and challenging. Participants run as much or as little as they wish, and the spirit inspired by Fred’s example is infectious. We’ve even had bikers and rollerbladers join us! If you cannot attend, please consider a generous donation to support our efforts as we log our miles in the August heat.


Stay tuned for information about the 41st Annual Rittner Run! To RSVP, email and title the subject line “I want to RSVP for the Run” and don’t forget to provide your attendance count so we can plan accordingly.

RSVP by Thursday, August 8th, 2024.
