Celebrate Veterans Day 2021 with the fourth annual Veterans Day 5, starting and finishing at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans on Saturday, November 13!  Offering timed 5 mile and 5K runs, along with a no charge, untimed .5 mile Remembrance Walk, the Veterans Day 5 will benefit the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and include the SpartanNash Community Pancake Breakfast (9:00 am-11:30 am, complimentary to run participants, $5 to all others) for the community and Veterans Home residents.  Commemorate Veterans Day by participating in or volunteering for the Veterans Day 5, and get to know some of Grand Rapids' very own veterans! 

PLEASE NOTE:  Participant shirts will be ordered to size for all those registered by 11:59p on Thursday, November 4.  Those registering after November 4 will not have an option for selecting a shirt size but will choose from existing inventory during check-in Saturday while supplies last.  All registered 5 mile and 5K participants will receive a finisher award and a complimentary pancake breakfast. Grand Rapids Event Management staff donates their time to coordinate the Veterans Day 5 and many of the vendors discount services so as much money as possible can be donated to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. This year, funds will be used to restore the historical fountain near the Home's entrance which has always been a gathering spot for residents and staff!
