Where's Larry? Eagle Bike Park, SSG Aaron Butler Memorial Run

Inaugural Staff Sargent Aaron Butler Memorial Purple Hear Run

This Saturday August 17 is the Inaugural Staff Sargent Aaron Butler Memorial Purple Heart Run.  SSG Aaron Butler was a true hero in every sense and sacrificed himself to help save his comrades. Now to honor Aaron and help all other veterans and their families a 5K or 10K fun run or walk will be held this Saturday starting at 9 am at the Eagle Bike Park.  In addition to run or walk you can do a Ruck.  That is the military name for doing the same distance but in full military clothing while wearing body armor and carrying a 40 pound pack of gear. Yes, quite the challenge but a chance to feel what it is like to go through military training. You need to sign up on line and the deadline is midnight Friday night.
