Registration open for March for Troops 5K

Posted on: January 25, 2013

Put feet to your support for veterans during the March for Troops 5K to be held March 2 at 8 a.m. at College of the Mainland. Open to runners of all skill levels, this event will raise funds for COM scholarships for current and former military members.

“It’s a community event. Any time we can help veterans, especially ones pursuing their education, is a good thing,” said Tige Cornelius, co-coordinator of the event. “Even if you don’t want to exercise, you can volunteer to donate your time to serve runners as they race.”

Veterans and their families are welcome to attend this awareness event to receive information from organizations about services available to them.

Runners may register and pay by cash or check in the COM Gym. If registering by Feb. 1, the early registration is $25; the fee is $35 after Feb. 1. Each participant will receive an event shirt if registered on or before Feb. 15. First through third-place winners, male and female, will be awarded certificates of recognition.
