Freedom Run 5K
August 2, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
What started out as a dream and a desire to help the Quad Cities area’s Veteran and active duty Military and their families became a reality.
However you decide to participate, you’re going to have fun!
From the cannon used as a “starter’s pistol” to the “dog-tag” medals the soldiers will place around the participants necks at the finish line, this unique event is “military” from start to finish.
The WWII Army jeep as the pace car, the various military vehicles throughout the course, the 100+ American flags lining the course, the camo-netting over the refreshments area, the unique military style tee shirt each participant will receive, this event will be 100% military.
