Run for Freedom this Memorial Day Weekend

The Run for the Red, White, and Blue will be full of ballons, music, and american flags.

Saturday May 27th, the Chennault Aviation Museum is kicking off Memorial Day Weekend with the 5th annual Run for the Red, White, and Blue. This 1k fun run and 5k run/walk will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Chennault Aviation Museum.

Along with the 1k and 5k there will also be museum tours, a red, white, and blue balloon release, a color guard performance, two patriotic singing groups, and blow up jumpers for the kids. The main purpose of this event is to come out and honor the sacrifices of those who fought for the freedoms we enjoy today. The Run for the Red, White, and Blue is one of the many ways the Chennault Aviation Museum is funded, along with community support, memberships, and grants.
