“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” - George Eliot

This upcoming event might be of interest to some of you. The information comes via NDSU:

Fargo, N.D., April 20 – Runners and walkers will gather at the North Dakota State University Wallman Wellness Center parking lot on Saturday, May 1, at 8:30 a.m. to participate in a “Run to Remember.” The Wallman Wellness Center and the Army and Air Force ROTC have teamed up to create this event in memory of service members who have died.

Since 9/11, nearly 5,400 service members have given their lives in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, 121 from Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. It also is estimated that more than 100,000 service members have been wounded in these conflicts. All proceeds from this run will be donated to the families of fallen service members.

The events include an individual and team 5K run/walk and a kids quarter mile race. Participants can register at http://runtoremember.zapevent.com.

Military vehicles will be on site. Each participant will receive a “Run to Remember” T-shirt, free breakfast and door prizes. Winners in each division will receive trophies.
