Celebrate our freedom with a special Memorial Day race on May 29, 2017 in the scenic West Creek Business Park in Richmond, Va. Great giveaways with an unforgettable opening ceremony where we will recognize and honor our current active military and military veterans for their service and remember those that gave their lives for our country. For those we have lost, this race is dedicated to their memory.
Come and meet retired Marine Staff Sergeant Herb Delbridge, who served over 10 years in the military and is a Vietnam War veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart Medal. In early 2013, Staff Sergeant Delbridge purchased a pumper fire truck to decorate it with scenes painted on the truck depicting the realities of the war. All U.S. military branches are represented on the truck including each branch’s flag. His main motivation for the truck is to give the Vietnam Veterans the thanks for their service and sacrifices. Those veterans never received the welcome home praises that they so richly deserve. He invites you to take a picture with him and his truck race day morning as we celebrate Memorial Day on Monday, May 29, 2017.
Two exciting races to choose from: 12k and 5k race all beginning at 8:00 am at the Strikers’ field in the West Creek Business Park. Come join the fun. Space limited!
