CCS Oncology is proud to support for the second year the K.I.A. Memorial Road March. The event will take place on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 11:00AM at Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park.
The K.I.A. Memorial Road March is a 10K ruck march through Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park, NY. It is a fun and challenging way to remember those members of our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
To date there are 306 service members from Western New York that have been K.I.A. in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Participants will march in one of four categories – Individual, Team (2 Marchers), Squad (4 Marchers) or Platoon (10 marchers) while carrying rucks filled with canned goods. Participants will carry a minimum of 50 pounds of weight, depending on which category they march in. Those unable to carry the amount of weight for their category are still encouraged to participate and march the route. Organizers ask that they consider donating canned goods and march with an empty ruck.
Although designed with the military in mind, the March is open to all – current / retired military, first responders and civilians.
The K.I.A. Memorial Road March raises funds to help support Veterans organizations in Western New York. Post-event all canned goods will be donated to help Veterans in need.
