Proceeds from the event will benefit three veteran-focused partner charities: Chippewa Valley Veterans Tribute Foundation of Eau Claire, Sofas for Service of Eau Claire, and Wisconsin Veterans Home at Chippewa Falls.

For non-runners, there are other ways to get involved. There will be music, family games and a variety of food trucks. 

All registered participants will get a meal ticket that can be redeemed for one free meal.
