Big Walnut area folks are always game for a fundraising 5K, and especially so when the fundraising is for a cause like the Ohio Warriors Scholarship Fund.

The Ohio Warriors Scholarship Fund, started by members of Sunbury’s American Legion Post 457, is managed by the Columbus Foundation and offers scholarships to any college student in Ohio who lost a parent in the War On Terror since September 1, 2001.

Co-chair of the inaugural Children of the Fallen 5K Run/Walk Donna Evans said the 5K begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, September 24 on the west side of Sunbury Village Square – walk-on registration and sign-in begins at 8 a.m.
