What is the City Stadium Run For Veterans? The best way to answer this question is to briefly explain the three goals associated with the run.
To showcase historic City Stadium, home of the Green Bay Packers from 1925-1956. In 2002, City Stadium was renovated to the tune of $300,000 to help embrace the proud history of the Green Bay Packers. Some of the features of the stadium you will see are a new sign, gate, memorial garden and historic plaques of Packers history when they called City Stadium home.
To feature and showcase the beautiful green parks and pedestrian trails along the 5K course. The course will take you through three gorgeous parks tucked along the East River utilizing the East River Trail and the Cora Vanderperren Trail. You will get the feel of being in a small town setting when you are actually just minutes from downtown Green Bay!
To help and showcase our Veterans. Each year we will earmark a Veteran cause for our proceeds. The first five years have generated over $43,000 for our worthy men and women who served our country. As of this date (1/30/17), it has yet to be determined what veteran organization will receive the 2017 proceeds. Once determined, it will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page. Stay tuned!
So, come along with us and "Run For Veterans" at historic City Stadium on Sept. 9, 2017!
