Pierre woman selected to ba part of the 437 Project

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- A Pierre woman has been selected as one of 12 individuals to take part in the 2024 437 Project.  Jessica Rumpca says the 437 Project’s goal is to raise mental health and suicide prevention awareness.

Rumpca has been running for nearly two decades including two Boston Marahtons in 2016 and 17 and was selected to run by simply reaching out.

For Rumpca, the hard part of running across the state has nothing to do with the running.

Each of the 12 runner must gain at least two jersey sponsors to take part in the run.  A link to Rumpca’s profile and donation link can be found with this story on our website at kccrradio.com.
