Welcome to the Sixth Annual Shannon Heil Memorial
FIERCE RUNNING FESTIVAL
Shannon Heil, a full-time student who also worked full-time delivering pizzas, and who further made time to train (and win!) at the highest levels of competitive cheerleading. She was determined to do more – to make her mark on this world – in everything she did. She picked up the moniker “Fierce” on the cheer mat because of her bright red hair, her precise, athletic and graceful movements and because she was tall and powerful. From a distance, Shannon Heil was a commanding presence. In conversation, even more so.
The Fierce Five is the only fundraising event held each year by the Fierce For Shannon Foundation. All proceeds from the Fierce Five go to the foundation. The Foundation awards scholarships and grants to individuals and groups whose work ethic, drive and determination align with the way Shannon lived her life.
In the simplest of terms: we FUEL FIERCE.

The FIERCE Running Festival is the only fundraising event for the Fierce For Shannon Foundation. Help us FUEL FIERCE by
running as a team.
There are two ways you can participate on Fierce Team. You can build your team and volunteer to fundraise (no minimum) for the Fierce For Shannon Foundation by using Crowdrise, an online fundraising tool or you can bring lot’s of your friends to run or walk with you. Fierce For Shannon Foundation will award prizes for the team that raises the most money and for the team that brings the most FIERCE friends to the race. All team members MUST be registered under the team name prior to the start of the race..no showing up at the race with a bus load of friends.. you could, but you won’t get credit for them being part of your team though.
