US Marine Corps Memorial 5K/10K

September 19, 2015

8001 W. 59th Avenue, Arvada, CO

Come join us for the US Marine Corps Memorial 5K/10K at Memorial Park in Arvada on September 19th. This event helps to fund the Marine Corps Memorial located at Colfax and 6th Avenue in Golden, Colorado. The Women Marines Association founded the US Marine Corps Memorial 5K in 2006 to help fund their 501 (c)3 purposes and to help with the expenses at the Memorial itself. Founded in 1977 on 6th Ave and Colfax in Golden - the Memorial serves as a place to mourn, reflect, honor and rest for those in any service, but especially for Marines. Many organizations use the Memorial for promotions and other ceremonies as well as weddings. It is also used to teach young people about service to the community and country and the importance of remembering those who served.
