Local military organizations, students, faculty, and people of all ages are invited to participate in this run/walk. Prizes will be given to the top 3 men and women participants. An awards ceremony will take place at 11:30am in the Rosza Parking lot after the walkers have completed their course.

Sunday, September 25 our Air Force ROTC Color Guard will partake in raising the flag that morning at 8:00am. We are inviting the public the come out and observe such a ceremony. It would be an honor to not only show our support for those who have fought for their country but also to show our support towards the efforts being made to make sure these individuals are not forgotten.

Registration is $10 and sign-up is available online at found under Hancock POWMIA Bridge Run. There will also be registration booths present at Red Friday at Mich Tech’s ROTC building, 12-3pm Sept. 23; and at Porvoo Park on race day from 8:30-9:30am Sept. 24.  Only paper forms will be available at these locations.  If you have any questions, please contact Brittney Szabo at
