This event is hosted by the 1st Battalion, 163rd Field Artillery Unit – the RedHawks. All net proceeds of this event will go to the Indiana National Guard Family Readiness Program. Please help raise funds for our local heroes!
Run with the RedHawks! Choose from a 5K Run or a 5K Competitive Walk starting at 9am on Memorial Day morning. We’ll also have a FREE kids dash. This will be the first timed running event to use the new pedestrian bridge over the Lloyd Expressway as a part of the course!
The morning will start with a Memorial Day service, the playing of Taps, and the singing of the National Anthem. The we’ll get things underway with a bang – with a 105mm Howitzer starting gun salute! The 1-163D Field Artillery Battalion will be holding an open house. Come talk to local Soldiers and tour the static displays of various military equipment used by our Service Members and learn what it means to be a Citizen Soldier.
