Front Porch: Brett Jensen walk
The sixth Brett Jensen Memorial Walk and Run is scheduled for 9 a.m. Aug. 23 at Everett’s American Legion Memorial Park, 145 Alverson Blvd. The noncompetitive, 3.6-mile event is held in remembrance of Brett Akio Jensen, a Cascade High School graduate and University of Washington student who died in 2002 from a fall at his fraternity house.
The walk stresses health and fitness, and raises money for the Brett Jensen Memorial Scholarship Foundation. In 11 years, almost $100,000 from the foundation has been awarded to Everett-area high school seniors. This year’s recipient of a $5,000 scholarship was Michael Cezik, a Cascade graduate who will attend the University of Florida.
Registration for the walk-run is $25 and includes a T-shirt. There will be coffee, a silent auction, a clown and music. Register online at brettjensen.wordpress.com.

Stillaguamish Ave. Blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol screenings will be offered as well as dental screenings and fluoride applications for children.
