Run for Freedom:
The Run for Freedom is a community-inspired event designed to honor and remember the sacrifices our American Soldiers have made in the name of Freedom. Each year hundreds of participants and spectators come out for the 5K run and 2mile walk along the beautiful Mississinewa River in Marion's Matter Park. All proceeds from the event go to support the SFC Collin J. Bowen Memorial Scholarship, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to give yearly scholarships to deserving Grant County High School students. The Run is a fantastic time for people of all ages, and brings the community together to say "thank you" to the heroes that have gone before us... the many veterans who walk, run, or volunteer... as well as the active duty soldiers present in their uniform making all of us incredibly proud to be Americans.
