Wheels4change would like to invite you to the Remembrance Fitness Event to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice and their Gold Star Families. Saturday, February 25, 2017, Remembrance Fitness Event will begin with an opening ceremony which is also a reception. This reception will start at 11:30am and the event will begin at 12:00 p.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Kent State Recreation Center will host this annual event.
About the event:
Participants can ride, walk/run, row, do yoga or boot camp style training or any other fitness activity — for two hours in memory of hometown heroes who lost their lives while serving our country. In addition, the Remembrance Fitness Event is an opportunity to build camaraderie, while increasing awareness of who made the ultimate sacrifice in our community. 100% of any funds raised during this event will go towards supporting local veterans and their families in our outreach programs. We will have the “The Eyes of Freedom Memorial” on display during the event. The memorial depicts the 23 men from Lima Company, but is dedicated to all that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
Cost: The suggested donation to participate is $25 per person. We also encourage advanced fundraising through the online platform, Crowdrise. You can form a team or go solo.

About our American War fighters:
“The Eyes of Freedom Memorial” will be on display at both the reception and the fitness event! Retired Marine, Mike Strahle, handles Public Affairs for the memorial. He will be in attendance. Mike also served with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines during the 2005 deployment. He fought alongside the 23 men from Lima who were killed in action (KIA) in 2005, and with an additional 25 Marines and Corpsman who gave their lives conducting combat missions. Lima Company conducted more direct combat missions than any unit in the war. The Memorial depicts the 23 men from Lima Company, but is dedicated to all that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
