Veterans Assistance League to Host Two Fall Events in Warrensburg
The Veterans Assistance League will host its 2nd Virtual Run for Freedom 5K and 10K this fall. Runners from all over the state and country will have the opportunity to run for the veterans who live at the Missouri Veterans Home in Warrensburg.
In a news release from Latisha Koetting, Supervisor of Volunteer Services at the Missouri Veterans Home-Warrensburg, runners may choose to run a 5K or 10K. They may run between September 25 and October 31. Upon registration, they will receive a link on where they may document their time. Then on Veterans Day (November 11), the veterans will give videos of thanks to the runners on the Missouri Veterans Home-Warrensburg’s Facebook page.
Runners who register by Sept. 10 will receive a t-shirt and personalized dog tag. The cost is $30. Runners who don’t want a t-shirt may continue to register until Sept. 25.
The Veterans Home invites the runners participating to email pictures of them getting ready, running or their dramatic finishes to Latisha.Koetting@mvc.dps.mo.gov to include in the awards presentation.
In addition, the Veterans Assistance League is hosting its first Freedom Photo Scavenger Hunt. Every day in the month of October, a different task will be posted on the Missouri Veteran Home’s Facebook page. The participant will need to take a photo of that task and submit it to get credit. For every task completed, their name will be placed into a drawing for prizes. The maximum number of tickets any one participant can receive is 31.
The cost is $25 for children and $30 for adults. To receive a t-shirt, registration is due by Sept. 10.
