Every January, Lithuanians participate in an annual winter run called “Gyvybės ir Mirties Keliu“ (The Path of Life and Death) to commemorate the people that died in Lithuania during the events of 13 January, 1991. This tradition has spread throughout the Lithuanian diaspora, and even the Lithuanian community in the states of Washington and Oregon ran in Portland to commemorate this important day.
