A 5k Race to Honor Veterans and Remember the Fallen. In Flanders Fields - a famous poem written in 1915 - came to symbolize the sentiment of war and the hopes of those who gave their lives in sacrifice for the fight. Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day,” to remember the peace treaty of WWI, and was first recognized on Nov. 11, 1919.
This 5k race will be held at the Palm Beach Gardens North County Park and will be a remarkable trail run through the shell rock paths in the natural area. Incorporated into the event will be a seed toss - where every runner will get a packet of Florida native wildflower seeds to toss into the natural areas for beautification.
IHOP Pancake Breakfast served after the race, and overall+age group awards to follow. T-shirts and finisher's medals guaranteed for the first 500 registrants.
All proceeds from this event will directly benefit Believe With Me's Mission to Bring Hope and Help to the Families of Fallen Soldiers.
