4th Annual Run to Remember
The Run to Remember is an annual 5k run/walk that both promotes awareness for the sacrifices that military service members make and fundraises for a specific cause. This year the proceeds from the event will be directly supporting the planning and construction of the Fallen Bison Memorial (FBM). The FBM is a memorial to honor the students, staff, and faculty of NDSU who have lost their lives while serving their country in the armed forces. It will be located directly south of the Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse and will consist of clay and granite brick walkways, clay brick walls, a granite brick floor, and a flagstaff.
