Casper Parade Day Race Benefits Wyomings Fallen Heroes [AUDIO]
The Wyoming Fallen Heroes Scholorship Program honors the memories of every soldier from Wyoming who has died while serving our country in the war against terrorism. These scholarships are established in the name of each of those soldiers at the community colleges throughout the state nearest to that soldier’s hometown. To raise money for these scholarships, the Windy City Striders and Hilltop National Bank is proud to sponsor the Casper Chase. This 5K race and Kids Fun Run will be held in downtown Casper immediately prior to the start of the Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo Parade on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011.
Please come run with us this year and do your part to keep our heroes’ memory alive. You can still sign up tonight 7-9 pm at city park and before the race tomorrow morning again at city park.
There will be a special ceremony starting at 9am tomorrow and the race goes off at 9:20. Remember there is a new parade route for tomorrow, for that click here.
