Tribute to the Troops 5K

The second annual "Tribute to the Troops 5K Run" took place on Sunday afternoon at the Lexington/Difley fields in Eagan. Over 150 runners/walkers participated in the event to raise awareness, fellowship and funds to support the troops and their local families.
Before the race, the Pizzazzjazz Band played; clowns entertained; people laughed and cried; a Color Guard presented the Colors and a short program was presented.
The race began after 12:00 PM and the top 2 runners both crossed the 5K finish line under 18 minutes! A great day was enjoyed by all!

  9. As an organizer of this event, I can truly say that I was abundantly blessed. The weather was great, and spirits were high.
    We remembered the sacrifices of many, and honored our troops by having a wholesome good time in this free country they defend.
    God Bless them all.
