I’ve Got Your Six 6K event coming to Coshocton

| March 16, 2014

COSHOCTON – Runners, walkers and those who support veterans’ causes are encouraged to participate in the upcoming I’ve Got Your Six 6K and Memorial Mile, which will be held at Coshocton Lake Park on Saturday, March 29.

The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities and is being conducted by the Veterans Assisted Living Out-Reach (VALOR) Clinic Foundation, which was established in 2010 in Pennsylvania by a retired Special Forces Sergeant Major to provide support to homeless veterans and those suffering from PTSD.

Proceeds from the event will help support the SGT Kevin Lannon Veterans Sanctuary in Fallsburg.

Registration is $20 for the 6K and $15 for the Memorial Mile. Race day registration is $25 for the 6K and $20 for the one mile. T-shirts are available for an additional $5. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the race is at 9 a.m.

There will be awards for top male and female veteran finishers; top male and female finishers; as well as awards in various age groups for both genders.

A former school house built in the 1930s, the planned facility is located at the intersections of Ohio Routes 586 and 79 in Fallsburg and is intended to serve veterans of Coshocton, Licking and Knox counties.

Rehabilitation of this facility to function as an appropriate veterans’ facility will require a community effort and community organizations are being asked to donate their time, talents and materials to make repairs.

The ultimate hope is to improve the quality of health care for area veterans by providing integrated health care, life coaching and shelter to veterans in need of assistance.

To view the facility, contact building donors Vaughn or Linda Richards during business hours at the Fallsburg Pizza shop or call 740-258-4313. For race information, e-mail [email protected]
