Texas Tech ROTC Fun Run to Benefit South Plains Honor Flight

 

Facebook

A fun run will benefit a notable local program.

Texas Tech’s Army ROTC has scheduled a 5K fun run to benefit the South Plains Honor Flight program.

The “Race to the Finish” 5K will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 27th in Tech’s Commuter West parking lot near the United Spirit Arena.

Packet pickup will run from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and the Opening Ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. The Awards Ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m.

Male and female participants will be divided into five categories, including high school, ages 18-25, 26-33, 34-40, and 41-plus.

Registration cost for the event is $20 per participant, and all profits will be donated to the South Plains Honor Flight. Each participant will receive a commemorative shirt, and those that finish will receive a “finishing dog tag.”

For the second year, the South Plains Honor Flight will fly U.S. military veterans, particularly those that served in World War II and Korea, to Washington D.C. in the fall to allow them to see the monuments to their efforts and other important venues.

The South Plains Honor Flight pays all expenses for the veterans, so volunteers are currently working to raise almost $200,000 needed to underwrite the event.

More information on Race to the Finish is available here, and more on the South Plains Honor Flight is available at www.americasupportsyoutexas.org.
