The Old Glory Run

A Salute to Those Who Serve

Runners and walkers of all ages are sure to enjoy this patriotic event in Cold Spring, MN on May 18, 2013. In addition to a 5k run/walk and a 1k kids fun run, you'll have the opportunity to thank our veterans, active duty military, reservist and National Guard members for their service to our country. All proceeds will be given to the local St. Cloud Chapter 9 of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization. In 5 years this event has raised nearly $100,000, which has been used to purchase two vans, support turkey and deer hunts, and do many other things for our disabled veterans. Thank you for your support! Visit the event website to register.
