Pete Rettler’s run raises record amount for Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial

Pete Rettler, 56, of West Bend, Wisconsin, has been running to raise funds for the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial, sometimes running while pushing his new granddaughter in her stroller. After a 1994 bet, he has run every day for 27 years. Not only did 2020 and injury not stop his run, he raised double the amount he intended to raise, earning $4,700 for the Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial in Kewaskum, WI.
