CALLING ALL VETERANS, POLICE OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS, & FIRST RESPONDERS
We want YOU to join us for the 3rd Annual 9-11 5K Run To Remember.
There are many great events going on throughout Southern Illinois on 9/11. None of them, however are specifically directed towards our Veterans, First Responders, Firefighters, and Police Officers. We all remember where we were that day and it is important to remember those that sacrificed their lives that day and every day.
This year the Veterans Center SIU has partnered with This Able Veteran , a local 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, to provide additional support to Veterans in need. Race day events will begin at 6PM and will include: the 5K race, a guest speaker, a 3-volley gun salute, the playing of TAPS, a presentation of the colors, the National Anthem, and finally, an Invocation from a VA Chaplain.
SIGN UP AND SUPPORT THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVE AND PROTECT US3rd Annual 9-11 5K Run To Remember will be taking place on Friday, September 11th starting at 6:00 PM. The event will take place at the SIU Arena. Contact Ryan McKennedy for registration and other questions can on-line HERE.
