Countdown to event
ARMED FORCES DAY 5K
Run for Restoration
"Our Servicemen and women are serving throughout the world as guardians of peace–many of them away from their homes, their friends and their families. They are visible evidence of our determination to meet any threat to the peace with measured strength and high resolve. They are also evidence of a harsh but inescapable truth–that the survival of freedom requires great cost and commitment, and great personal sacrifice". – President John F. Kennedy, 1963
So, please join us for the 2020 Armed Forces Day 5K
This is a benefit run to help local veterans. 100% donations collected will benefit local veterans. The event will take place on Sunday, May 17th 2020 along the Rio Grand starting at Mary Frances Park in El Paso. Prior to the start of the race, there will be a presentation by the color guard and the playing of the National Anthem followed by a moment of silence.
An awards ceremony will follow the completion of runs. We strongly encourage all disabled veterans that can to participate to join this event, as this event was created to honor your military services while raising funds to improve services available to you from local veterans' agencies.
