Each year the K.I.A. Memorial March sets out to directly help support Veterans, their families & Veterans organizations in Western New York.  If you think you're tough enough, you can help too.


The K.I.A. Memorial March is a 10k march through beautiful Chestnut Ridge Park.  Here's the kicker - it's done with a ruck sack while carrying canned goods for 3 food pantries in Western New York.

You choose how you want to enter.  It can be done for fun or as a competition, it's up to you and your friends!  The march is done as a memorial to soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and also to help feed local veterans who need it.

There are 4 separate categories to enter:

  • Individual
  • Team (2 Marchers)
  • Squad (4 to 9 Marchers)
  • Platoon (10 Marchers or more)

*Participants will carry a minimum amount of weight, depending on which category they march in. However, if you can't carry the weight and just want to walk they ask that you register, join in on the walk, and donate the minimum of 30 lbs food at the beginning, no need to carry that weight, just have fun!
