The third annual Run to Remember 5k is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, at NDSU. The run/walk will start at the Bentson/Bunker Fieldhouse, 1301 Centennial Blvd., at 8:30 a.m. for all divisions including men and women 25 and younger, and men and women 26 and older. A short kids’ race on the sidewalks surrounding Bentson/Bunker Fieldhouse also is scheduled at 8:10 a.m. All races are open to the public.
The NDSU Air Force and Army ROTC organize Run to Remember to promote awareness for sacrifices military service members make and to fundraise for a specific cause. Proceeds from the event will support planning and construction of the Fallen Bison Memorial, which will honor NDSU students, staff and faculty who have lost their lives while serving their country in the armed forces. The monument will be located directly south of Bentson/Bunker Fieldhouse and will consist of clay and granite brick walkways, clay brick walls, a granite brick floor and a flagstaff.
For more information about the memorial or to make a donation, visit www.fallenbisonmemorial.org.
