K-Staters invited to participate in wear blue run May 10

Submitted by Laura Farkas

The Institute for the Health and Security of Military Families invites the K-State, Manhattan and Fort Riley communities to a wear blue 5K run/walk beginning at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, at Memorial Stadium. This event is free and open to everyone.

Wear blue: run to remember was founded in 2009 as a way to honor all military members killed in combat. Each run begins with a Circle of Remembrance, where every participant has the opportunity to call out the name of those for whom they run. Co-founder Lisa Hallett will be leading the circle and run. Participants should plan to arrive 15 minutes early.
