Event Description

Join us on Saturday, October 26, 2024, at Cahoon Park in Bay Village, Ohio, for a run and walk honoring Amy Mihaljevic. 

The Amy Mihaljevic Memorial Run & Walk started out as Walk for Amy during the 2020 COVID year.  As interest in the annual event grew, the Mihaljevic family wanted to expand the event to include a 5K race.  Amy was an energetic girl that loved staying active riding horses, riding her bike with friends, or playing in the neighborhood.  This race celebrates Amy's enthusiasm, zest for life, and love for people.  Run or Walk with that in mind.   Amy is forever in our hearts and is Never Forgotten. 

Entrance Fee & Donation:

Your financial contribution to this event either as a runner / walker or donor, will directly impact the investigation's ability to bring justice to Amy's killer and renews hope for the Milhaljevic family that Amy is Never Forgotten by the community at large.

The Amy Fund was established as a budget line-item to help fray the costs for the ongoing investigation.  Although the city has a budget for the police department, the amount of money it costs to run DNA testing can run in the thousands of dollars each year. The police department receives funds for the investigation through the fiscal year budget, various outside agencies, and grant money.   The AMY FUND allows the police department to tap into funds without the wait time that occurs before receiving grant money.  DNA testing for one hair currently costs $7,000.  The police department estimates that it will spend upwards of $70,000 DNA testing in the upcoming year.
