5K Run/Walk is to support a local soldier named Jeremiah Morgan. We are running and walking to show him and his family we have their back. Jeremiah has recently been diagnosed with Desmoplastic small round cell sarcoma which is a rare cancer! Jeremiah is married to Courtney Morgan, he has 4 children! Jeremiah is currently serving with 1/293rd Infantry Battalion! So come out and show your support!

The cost of this run covers a t-shirt, bib and the rest is going towards Jeremiah and his family! They moved in with family for the deployment. It was canceled and soon after he was diagnosed. He has been making trips to Michigan and back for medical treatment. He is unable to work at this time. We want to help him and his family through this!
