Come join us in remembering our deceased military who died while on active duty in our armed services.  The annual 5K & 10K race and 1 mile Fun Walk honor the men and women who have given their lives to preserve the freedoms of our great country.  We also recognize the current sacrifices of our Active and Reserve personnel and their families.  It is a cherished Memorial Day event that incorporates national pride while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.  There will be a military tribute prior to the race and all registered participants will receive a “Red, White, and Blue” pancake breakfast immediately following the race. (Non-race participants are welcome to enjoy breakfast for a voluntary, nominal donation.)  Runners and walkers of all experience levels are invited to come out and enjoy this Memorial Day event!  Military discounts are available.  Proceeds go to benefit the parish school and the American Red Cross.

For questions, email, or call 843-662-1910.
