Fallen Soldiers 5K Run/Walk

October 8 @ 9:00 am

Each year, Western Illinois University hosts the Fallen Soldiers 5K to raise money for the WIU Fallen Soldiers Scholarship Fund, which supports veterans and service members currently enrolled at Western. Before the race, a special program is held to honor our Fallen Soldiers for whom the scholarship was established and recognize the current scholarship recipients. This race typically brings in 400 – 500 participants to WIU’s campus that come together to support this wonderful cause.
