Event Description

RVN3 Bubba Run is a fun event for the whole family to raise money for the RVN3 Foundation. All proceeds will go directly into supporting local students in athletic and educational goals. We firmly believe that by helping support our athletes we are in turn helping promote and encourage their educational goals as well.

Richard Vernon Nielsen III, known by family and friends as Bubba, was taken from this world too early at the young age of 22. His life revolved around sports, mainly soccer, basketball, and track but also included football, golf, wrestling, and snowboarding. Being such a competitive athlete, he did not let anything get in the way of being able to participate in whatever sport the season called for. This met staying out of trouble and keeping his grades up to be eligible to play. From his years in sports Bubba gained lifelong qualities of teamwork and leadership and built up sense of confidence that no one could take away from him. All of that helped him excel through the short but fulfilled life he shared with us.

He is the inspiration behind the RVN3 foundation, where we hope to use sports to promote education and support kids in their academic and athletic endeavors alike.
