BC Veterans Association to host 5K fun run and BBQ

Wed Nov 5, 2014

The Brazosport College Student Veterans Association is hosting a 5K Fun Run and BBQ on Saturday, November 15.

 
The event, which will be held on the Brazosport College campus, is dedicated to all Service Members, Veterans and their families for the sacrifices they’ve made. All proceeds from the event will go toward the BC Student Veterans Association to assist in providing our community’s veterans the support needed to succeed.
 
All participants and supporters are encouraged to dress in a fun, military theme.
 
The event begins at 7:30 a.m. with the raising of the American flag, followed by a free half-mile kids race at 8 a.m.
 
The 5K race begins at 8:30 a.m., and medals will be given to first- through third-place finishers in age categories throughout the male and female divisions. Top three finishers in the kids run will receive gift cards.
 
Veterans and those currently serving in the military can run for free. The entry fee for BC students, faculty and staff is $15. Entry for the general public is $20, and T-shirts will be given to all 5K participants.
 
There is a $2.50 additional registration fee for all participants.
 
Following the race at 11 a.m. and continuing through 5 p.m., barbecue plates will be served for $10. The price includes the barbecue plate and a beverage. Free facepainting and other local vendors will be on hand throughout the day.
