MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- A fundraising event coming up this weekend in Marshfield is honoring a young woman who was killed more than six years ago.
Paws for Brittany is a 5k fun run and pet walk in memory of Brittany Zimmermann. She was found murdered in her Madison apartment back in April, 2008. Her killer has not been found.
Zimmermann's parents say Brittany loved animals and had three cats of her own. They say this event is perfect for their family because the proceeds benefit the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter. The organization is actively working to raise funds to build an animal shelter in the Marshfield area.
