Pre-race Dedication Ceremony to Veterans at the Thank A Vet 5k Run / Walk

2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. Over 3 million service men and women left their loved ones to answer the call to duty and bravely serve in a country far away from home.

The Fort GreeneVille Daughters of the American Revolution are hosting a 5k run/walk to not only Welcome Home those Veterans who saw our Nation through one of the most challenging times we have ever seen, but to thank all Veterans who have proudly served in our Armed Forces. They must never be forgotten.

Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution would like to invite Veterans, their family and the public to the Thank A Vet 5k Run/Walk Pre-Ceremony.

Please join us on Saturday, May 30th at 8:45 a.m. at the Darke County Fairgrounds Veterans Building.

Ohio State Representative Jim Buchy will perform the opening ceremony and honor ALL Veterans with special recognition to Vietnam Veterans.

The program will also include the American Legion Post 140 Honor Guard.

You do not need to register or participate in the run/walk, just come and give the recognition due to our Veterans.

If you would like to register for the 5k, visit www.alliancerunning.com. Mail in registrations can be printed from that site or register online. The 5K run / walk starts at 9:00 a.m.

This run/walk event is sponsored by VFW Post 7262, Post 7262 Men’s Auxiliary and Post 7262 Boosters.

Proceeds will benefit Wounded Warrior Project.

Please pass this information on to family and friends.
