Please join us on Sunday afternoon, November 10th, to celebrate our Nation's Veterans, and the 101st anniversary of Veterans Day (former known as Armistice Day)!
The 2nd Annual Veterans Day 5K is a celebration of the 101st Anniversary of Armistice Day (now known as Veterans Day) and honors our service members and veterans here in Columbia. The route features many monuments and landmarks, both of the University Campus, and of South Carolina’s veterans, including the Horseshoe, the World War memorial, the Russell House, the South Carolina Veterans Memorial by the State House, and more! The 5K is a fundraiser benefiting the Friends of Fisher House Columbia, SC, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose goal is to bring a Fisher House to Columbia to provide lodging for the families of veterans who require overnight or extended stay care at the Dorn VA Medical Center. The 5K will take place on November 10th, 2019, starting at 2:00 p.m., and all are encouraged to join in whether you prefer to run, walk, or ruck.
