Run/walk to help our heroes

Cypress will come together on October 28 as Bridgeland hosts the annual Fun Run/Walk for Heroes in their ongoing effort to raise funds for a veterans memorial.

The event is the work of The Bridgeland Community Supports Veterans, Inc., a 501(c) entity created to help establish a memorial in Bridgeland dedicated to the men, women and families of the armed forces.

There are several options for race participants, starting with the 5K timed run/walk at 7 a.m., followed by a kids’ 1K at 7:30 a.m. All events will be held in Bridgeland’s Festival Park, and top finishers will receive trophies while top fundraisers will receive special prizes. All participants will receive a race shirt and hand towel. There will also be various vendors, food trucks and entertainment during the event.

Race proceeds will help fund the $1.5 million Veterans Memorial planned for the community while also supporting the immediate needs of veterans in the community and helping the group continue their Bridgeland Veterans Memorial Day, Bridgeland Veterans Day Festivals and Christmas Toys for Veterans’ Children programs.

For those interested in learning more, the group has set up an Eventbrite page and a Facebook event.
