Description

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth. After a landing that included dodging a lunar crater and boulder field just before touchdown, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the area around their lunar landing site for more than two hours. They collected soil and rock samples, set up experiments, planted an American flag, and left behind medallions honoring the Apollo 1 crew and a plaque saying, “We came in peace for all mankind.”

50 years later, on July 20, 2019, the Minutemen Moonwalk-A-Thon celebrates the accomplishment and valor of these first moonwalkers. The commemorative event is a fundraiser for GET ON TRACK, a student-initiated project to refurbish the Cocoa Beach Jr/Sr High School track. The Minutemen Moonwalk-A-Thon is not timed, but laps on the track can be recorded for participants to see which Apollo mission they will walk with - Apollo 11, Apollo 12, or Apollo 14.
