The East Mississippi Veterans Foundation cordially invites you to participate in Meridian’s first ever Freedom 5K Run, Walk and Fun Run honoring area service members, veterans, their families, and the military from Meridian and East Mississippi.  This special event like no other will be held on Saturday, December 11th, starting and finishing at Meridian’s World War I Doughboy Monument.  After opening ceremonies, the Freedom 5K run and walk will kick off at 8:00 a.m., followed by the fun run. Award medals will be given to the top 3 finalists in various age divisions.  Meridian and East Mississippi has a deep rooted and continued rich heritage associated with the military and this event will afford sponsors and participants an opportunity to show their appreciation of this rich heritage. We encourage race participants to recognize and honor a family member, relative or friend for their service in our armed forces by wearing that individual’s name during the event. This event is open to all ages.
