If you haven't seen this march in the past, do not miss it this year.  You can help out Veterans, their families and organizations that help Veterans all at once with this one of a kind march.It's called the K.I.A. Memorial March and it's happening this Saturday at Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park.

It's a 10K ruck march with a ruck sack full of canned goods.  Yup, the marchers actually carry a ruck sack full of canned goods while making the 10k trip through Chestnut Ridge Park.  The purpose is to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to our country and to fill 3 food pantries here in Western New York that help provide relief to Veterans and their families when they need it most.

You can participate alone or with a group and this year there's even a trophy for the biggest group to finish.  So get your squad together and get registered.

I was honored to play the music for the pre-party and for the runners who were just getting started last year and I will be back there again this year to do the same.

Join me this year and help out this incredible cause!
