2019 Run to Remember

Mar 22, 2019

The Nitsche Group Team participated in the 2019 Run to Remember Saturday, March 23rd, a 5K walk/run honoring local influential Rotarians.

The Run to Remember 5K, put on by the Rotary Club of Giddings, is a continuation of the annual Emmet Hannes Memorial 5K in honor of Mr. Emmett Hannes– a WWII veteran, active citizen, and influential leader in the community.

Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Hannes helped kick-start the Giddings Rotary Club and served as the club’s first president. Professionally, he worked his way up from a cashier up to the President of First National Bank in Giddings. And somewhere along the way, he and his wife, Helen, founded the Hannes Insurance Agency, known today as The Nitsche Group.

The change to the Run to Remember was made after the community lost an Honorary Rotarian who was instrumental in the Rotary Club establishing the Interact Club at Giddings High School— Mrs. Phyllis Simmonds.

The 5k now honors all the outstanding Rotarians who have made an impact on this community but are no longer with us: Emmett Hannes, Leonard Kriegel, Victor Zoch, Alan Schneider, Travis Sheffield, Clarence Mutscher, Andy Smith, Raymond Smith, Ralph Lien, Leroy Prihoda, E.C. Knippa, and Phyllis Simmonds.

All proceeds from the Run to Remember 5K benefit community service projects and local scholarships.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year’s event, and big thanks to those who played a part in making this event happen! Your hard work helped make this even a success for the walkers, runners and event goers!
