While many people will be celebrating memorial day weekend by the water with a cold one, how about we change it up this year! The Colorado veterans Project is hosting its 3rd Annual Memorial Day Run & March to help feed the homeless. Whether you sign up for a 5k, 10k, or 30k, bring the family and help serve this wonderful cause. Click HERE for more details.
Bonus For Soldiers: Earn the Norwegian Foot March Medal
To achieve the medal you must, in uniform, ruck 18.6 miles with a 25 pound ruck. The weight must be 25lbs of unperishable food that will be weighed, and donated, following the end of the march. The march will be administered by a Norwegian Army Officer who will present both civilian and military persons completing the march with the Norwegian Foot March Medal.
Straight from the Site: “Proceeds from your registration (and donations!) go directly to helping Colorado Veterans. We encourage you to share this page and get friends and family involved to support the cause! Thank you on behalf of Colorado Veterans Project.
