The Southern Utah Veterans home is hosting its annual Veterans Appreciation 5K/1-Mile Stan Snow Walk and Roll at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, May 18.

This will be an opportunity to pay tribute to veterans while having fun. Southern Utah Veterans Home and Run for the Vets would like to give people a chance to remember the sacrifices American service men and women have made to preserve the way of life people in the United States enjoy. Participants will be given bibs to wear that can carry the name of a veteran for whom they are running to honor. Participants will also receive a shirt and participation medal. The idea is to have fun, but also to honor those who have served and bring awareness to the challenges faced by veterans and active service members.

1 MI – This walk is for Veterans, individuals with disabilities and anyone who wants to walk a mile with our nation's heroes.

(We ask that each disabled participant in the Walk & Roll have someone join them.)

Opening ceremonies will start at 9:30 a.m. The Walk & Roll will begin at 9:45 a.m. and the 5K will start at 10 a.m.

All participants will receive a t-shirt and participation medal.

The veterans home is partnering again with “Run for the Vets” as a way to help raise awareness to challenges that veterans and active-duty members face.
