Linda Buttars served on the Healthy West Jordan Committee for 7 years, four of which she was chairperson. She took on the responsibility for the “Decked in Red” Family Run and Walk, which began as an effort to increase physical activity and exercise for individuals and families, after its first year. Under her coordination, the event increased by 100 participants each year and has become the huge success that it is today. Linda passed away on November 4, 2006. The City Council approved a Resolution renaming the “Decked in Red” Family Run & Walk to be the “Linda Buttars Memorial Fun Run”. The Healthy West Jordan Committee has strived to maintain low entrance fees for the Fun Run further promoting this as a family and community event.
