Each year, Elk Horn, Iowa—RUN FOR THE FALLEN, Inc. strives toward making a difference in the lives of so many people affected by the loss of their loved ones from all branches of the military. Each and every person touched by a loss due to Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and all other Military conflicts will feel they are not alone and find comfort knowing their HERO will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN for paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
This year, we are starting a new tradition for the Elk Horn, Iowa RUN FOR THE FALLEN— we will be holding the “Walk of Honor” on Sunday, May 26 during the 2013 Elk Horn Iowa Tivoli Fest. We will start at 2:00pm with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the American Legion Post #322 Veterans’ Memorial Park. When the ceremony is over, we will start the “Walk” by taking the trail to the DANISH IMMIGRANT MUSEUM and return back to the Park. Along the “Walk of Honor” we will display our local veterans’ photo and a short biography on weather-proof, moveable signage—placards.
