About the event
Join us on a nice 28 mile scenic walk along a river highway from Red Wing, MN to Hastings, MN on Memorial Day. This is a free event aimed at Veterans from all branches but family, friends and other supporters are welcome to join us, and have. The March is a way for all of us to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We have Honor Markers every mile along the route recognizing individuals who have done so. The March is also a good excuse for us Veterans to reunite, catch up and tell some stories over a few hours. You can do this! We walk as a group at an easy 3 mph pace and stop every hour for a 10-15 min break. You can choose to meet us in Hastings at 515am for the shuttle bus, or meet us in Red Wing at 545. We will step off at 6am sharp - rain or shine. An MRE lunch will be provided unless you say No thanks when you register. But who would say no?! You definitely should not say no to this March. I hope to see you register, and to see you show up May 28th. You won't regret it.
