City Stadium Run for Veterans kicks Off Saturday

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Sep 4, 2013

GREEN BAY - The City Stadium Run for Veterans kicks off this Saturday in Green Bay.

Leaders hope to showcase the Historic City Stadium, home of the Packers between 1925 and 1956. They also hope to highlight the many parks along the 5K route as well as to help raise money for our nation's veterans.

"This year, we're going to raise some money for the Wounded Warrior Amputee Hockey team," Race organizer Jim Belongia said. "One team is a sled team for people who have lost legs. The other is a standing team and they actually skate with prosthetics, which is pretty amazing,"

Registration packet pick-up is this Friday starting at 4:00 p.m. at Green Bay East High School. The race kicks off at 8:00 a.m. also at East.
