We are a group of Marine Capt. Seth Mitchell’s high school classmates, who miss our friend and want to keep his memory alive. We represent the many people who Seth made an impression on with his sense of humor, kind heart, and loyal friendship. As we organize this 5k Race and the scholarship memorial fund, we are motivated by one enduring inspiration: to live each day a little more honorably, kindly, and humbly… just like Seth.

Please join us by donating, running, or volunteering – and keep Seth’s memory alive.

Seth Mitchell was a Marine Captain, former football player at Loveland High School, and the Class President when he graduated in 1997. Mitchell was the first LHS graduate to die while fighting in the Middle East wars when he was killed in action in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in 2009.

This LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV video is an interview with Steve Mitchell, father of Seth, after last years race. He talks about the race, his son, and how the scholarship money has been used, and the community of Loveland.


These LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV videos were taken last May when two Loveland High School students received money that was raised at last year’s race.
