Salute Our Troops 10K, 5K and family fun run 2015
Thursday, September 3, 2015
The Salute Our Troops Run returns to Estrella for the third time November 7 and you know what that means: It’s time to lace up those running shoes and race for a great cause. The 10K run, 5K walk/run and family fun run will weave through Estrella’s paths and trails system offering runners fabulous views of our lakes and landscape.
Why should you participate, you ask? We’ve got three great reasons:
1. It’s for a great cause.
The Support Our Troops Run will benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM), a local nonprofit organization that provides moral and financial assistance to Arizona active duty military, their families and wounded warriors regardless of overseas deployment status. Proceeds from the event help MAM fulfill its mission and make a difference in the lives of local enlisted service members and their families by providing emergency assistance for things like rent, mortgage, utilities, vehicle payment and food.
We think that’s reason enough, but if you need more convincing…
2. It’s going to be a blast.
Last year’s event was a big hit with serious runners, walkers and onlookers alike, all coming together to show their support and have some fun. This year’s run is shaping up to be equally great. Spending a few hours outside in the gorgeous November weather won’t hurt either.
3. There’s something for everyone.
Running isn’t your thing? No problem. During the race, there will be a festival with food, crafts, vendors, music and special guest appearances from local sports mascots for everyone to enjoy. There will also be a military honor wall and Military VIP Lounge for those who have served to enjoy a light breakfast.
Registration is open now and closes October 30. Active and retired military receive 20 percent off registration by entering MILITARY at checkout. For more information and to register to run and volunteer, visit www.saluteourtroopsrun.com.
