About This Activity

The Sarah Kasunić Memorial 5K run/walk is to honor the life of an amazing young woman. 

Sarah Dorothy Ann Kasunić, age 23, of Butler, passed away Saturday, March 23, 2019, as a result of a vehicle accident in Tennessee. 

Born in Butler on July 26, 1995, she was the daughter of Thomas and Margaret (Karlheim) Kasunić. She was a member of Saint Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church and was developing her relationship with Jesus Christ.

Sarah was a traveling registered nurse, working in Knoxville, TN. Sarah’s request to be an organ donor was honored and her family encourages others to give the gift of life. Sarah was able to donate her heart to a 10 year old girl in Michigan. 

 She was a graduate of Knoch High School Class of 2013.  She received an associate degree in nursing from Butler County Community College in 2016 and was the past president of Phi Theta Kappa.

Sarah had created a scholarship program to assist nursing students. All proceeds from the 5K registrations will go directly to her scholarship. “[The scholarship is] to continue her legacy and how involved she was with nursing and helping other people,” said family friend Matt Wilson. 

 Her father said her two passions were to travel and to help people. Sarah taught us all to take risks, live life on the edge, and to enjoy the journey. But to also remember to help people all along the way, and to remember to focus on others first. 

 Our goal of this 5K run/walk is to celebrate the life of Sarah. We hope her friends, family, and the community will come to support this cause. I know Sarah is looking down from heaven proud of us for carrying her torch of love. 

 See you all on September 7th! 



If you are unable to attend the 5k, all memorial donations can be made directly to the BC3 Education Foundation, Attn: Sarah Kasunić Scholarship, 

PO Box 1203, Butler, PA. 16003-1203, to help support nursing education.
