Support Our Forces 5km Fun Run and Walk

Winnipeg, Manitoba
On June 28th, 2008 at 10 am, Colonel Scott Howden (17 Wing Commander) fired the starting pistol to commence the 5 km Fun Run and Walk sponsored by the Winnipeg Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) at Assiniboine Park Duck Pond.
All proceeds from the race went directly to programs and services for military families in Winnipeg. Yellow Ribbon-Support Our Forces Merchandise was available for purchase before and after the race. All participants were entered in random prize draws that took place at the conclusion of the race. Sounds like it was a lot of fun and very supportive of our families and troops! Thank you to all who joined. The Winnipeg MFRC "has been wonderful to all moms wives and families at home. "
Shown here is a proud military mom, June, who along with here supportive sisters-in-law participated in the run in support of their son and nephew who is serving in Afghanistan. "We are so proud of that kid (man)" said June. We are proud of him too June along with all those serving alongside Robert overseas!
Now, I'd like to send a BIG:
~from Military Mom and all your family and friends in Canada! Godspeed!
