The Blue Star Salute Foundation will host its 6th Annual Memorial 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Fun
Run for Alabama’s Fallen Heroes on Saturday, and the South Alabama Veterans Council will
host the Armed Forces Day Celebration and
15th Annual Blue Star Salute in Mobile.

The 5K Certified race runs along the Causeway and starts and finishes at the USS ALABAMA
Battleship Memorial Park. Each runner’s race bib will bear the name of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes since 9/11/01 on their race bib. You also have the opportunity to list your own Hero as well. This is the only race in this region of Alabama of this kind. Growing every year, don’t miss the opportunity to show that you “will never forget” and run in Honor of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes. Names of the fallen are listed on the 5K
Run Shirt so don’t miss out on the opportunity to order one of those. For $15 you can be Blue Star Salute Supporter and get t-shirt.
