The organizers of the A2A Race for Mercy lovingly dedicate and permanently rename our 5k race to "Robbie's Run" in memory of Robbie Brooks. The entire advisory board of the A2A Race for Mercy grieves the loss of Robbie, beloved wife, mother, friend, and avid runner who believed in and worked for the success of the A2A from the very beginning.
On race day, Robbie's official post was always at the track entrance where her voice would finally go hoarse from her enthusiastic cheers of encouragement to the runners. Robbie was the very best example of what God intended mankind to be. She was the finest example of His handiwork.
As a runner, Robbie was like all runners; she measured her success in minutes and seconds, splits, miles, kilometers and personal records. But, Robbie, none of us will remember you because of minutes and seconds, splits, miles, kilometers or personal records. For all of us, Robbie, your true success was measured in smiles, huge laughs, hugs, enthusiasm and encouragement. Robbie, when you count those - you have run to the moon and back!
No, Robbie, we will never forget you and we will miss you always!
