Shrapnel Happens 5k Walk/Run
Nov 6, 2010 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$25.00
Richfield, MN – At 9 am, November 6th, 2010 the Shrapnel Happens 5k walk/run will be held at beautiful Veterans Memorial Park in Richfield, MN. All net proceeds from this event will go directly to support the Semper Fi Fund.
The event organizers recognize that when men and women volunteer to serve their country the unfortunate reality is that sometimes Shrapnel Happens. So during this exciting season for the United States Marine Corps, whose birthday is on November 10th, and we salute all Veterans on November 11th, the folks at “Shrapnel Happens” thought thought they would add another opportunity to honor all those who have served.
This event will be raising funds and awareness for those who have been injured in the course of their military careers. So please, bring your friends and family to this fun event and help support a great cause!
The path circles a 100-arce wooded park and ends at the Honoring All Veterans Memorial. The Memorial currently consists of four tablets with names of service members along with a bronze bust of Cpl. Charles W. Lindberg, a member of the first team of Marines to raise a flag on Iwo Jima sixty-five years ago. Lindberg lived in Richfield until his death in 2007.
Sponsors for the event include the Marine Corps Coordinating Council of Minnesota and the St. Thomas Veterans Association.
