This year marks the fifth annual Veterans Day 5k, which will be held on Saturday, November 8 starting at 9 a.m. on the historic Oval of the CSU campus. This is a non-profit fundraiser designed to raise money for the Colorado State University Disabled Veterans Scholarship fund. The scholarship is awarded to veterans who were honorably or medically discharged and are living with disabilities related to their military experience. Each year CSU honors a member of our armed forces who has a personal connection to the university. Over the years, the run has attracted hundreds of participants, including CSU alumni, veterans, kids in strollers, experienced runners, and everyone in between. Come join fellow community members in honoring a fallen hero as well as helping our student veterans. Register in advance ($25) or on the day of the race ($30) at 8 a.m. Call 970-491-3977 or email for more information. Participants get a commemorative t-shirt and participant packets.
