What a great way to start any 4th of July and to support northern Wisconsin area veterans or veteran organizations! This race checks the boxes for an outdoor 5K run or 1 mile fun run/walk in the north woods, enjoying time with your family, having fun galore, smiling, and is a great way to help area veterans. Join us for this early morning outing.
This year we maintain our two in-person events--the 5K trail run or a 1-mile fun run/walk--which take place at the MECCA trail system in Mercer, Wisconsin on July 4. However, we've added a Virtual Challenge to allow flexibility to anyone who wishes to do a 5K run or 1 mile fun run/walk where they want between June 15 and July 4 and still contribute to the race's veteran charity.
Your contributions, participation, donation and generosity support those courageous individuals who make the sacrifice for the sake of freedom. As always, proceeds support area veterans, military persons and their families, or other veteran-related activities or organizations. This year, the Run for a Vet Race proceeds will go to the Mercer VFW Building fund to help refinish their hall for meetings and events.
This event is hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary Post 424 - Northern Lakes, Mercer. We are a 501(c)19, a post, auxiliary organization.
A special thank you to MECCA trail system for their continued support in promoting outdoor events.
