|Event: ||20th Annual Brian Rohne Memorial 5k Run / Walk|
|Description: ||Brian Rohne was the most valuable athlete for the Menís Cross Country team at Northern Kentucky University in 1992. The Milford High School graduate was a leader in every sense of the word. He was a truly talented runner and a tenacious competitor. Brian also excelled in the classroom and was always quick to help those not as fortunate. Brian, like many other young athletes, had great plans for his athletic career. While on a training run in January of 1993, pursuing the dream to be an NCAA champion, Brian was fatally injured. He was 20 years old. All proceeds raised from this event will go to the Brian Rohne Memorial Fund, which will be used to assist future runners to pursue that dream of greatness at NKU.|
