5K and walk to benefit Penn State DuBois veterans memorial

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State DuBois Veterans Club will hold a 5K run and one-mile walk to benefit the club's fund drive for the installation of a campus veterans memorial. The event is planned for April 21 at the Beaver Meadow Walkway in DuBois. Registration is scheduled from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., with the race slated for 9:30 a.m.

Club members are raising funds for the production and installation of a memorial to honor all students — past, present and future — who have served in the armed forces. The granite, keystone-shaped stone will feature the seals of all five branches of the U.S. military, as well as an inscription memorializing student veterans of the campus. Club members plan to employ R.D. Brown Memorial of Punxsutawney to create the monument, which will stand 4 feet high and 3 feet wide. It is to be placed in Schoch Plaza, a central open space on campus.

To register for the 5K or the walk, contact Sueann Doran at [email protected] or 814-375-4716. Registration forms also are available on campus at the Veterans' Resource Center in Room 208 of the DEF Building.
