WOW! What a difference a year can make!  Thanks for everyone's patience as we work through planning a SAFE and COVID-19 Prevention Compliant Event for our community and participants.  We have completed our surveys and the plan today is to hold a combination of virtual and on-site events.   As of today, we are doing both a virtual and on-site Freedom Run/Walk and Freedom Rides.  We will have an on-site Freedom Open as well for disc golfers.  Unfortunately, we cannot meet the required health and safety rules to hold the Spur Ride this Year.   

 

This year we will focus on the Recognition of our Veterans and their families.  Over the next few months, you'll see pictures and stories of Veterans YOU want to recognize as well as local/regional Veterans and their families who have served our Nation.   

 

Thanks for sticking with us as we Run, Ride, Release, to Recognize our Veterans and the Founding City of Veterans Day - Emporia, Kansas.
