Fourth Annual Honor Walk to be held March 1
Staff Report~ 2/18/2015
PHOENIX – Join thousands of people honoring military members on Sunday, March 1, at the 4th Annual Honor Walk and 5K Fun Run. The Honor Walk is held each year to honor the service of veterans and active military personnel.
“Our goal (with the walk) is to keep the service of our men and women in the armed forces, and of our veterans, at the forefront of people’s minds,” said Denis Day, who joined Honor Walk when he witnessed how his son Colin struggled to transition to civilian life after returning from his deployment to Iraq. “The Honor Walk is the community’s way to show their support and to say ‘thank you’ for their service.”
The accessible, family-friendly walk and fun run starts at US Airways Center and winds through downtown Phoenix, passing by Arizona’s war memorials at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza. The event features a vintage plane fly-over, honor wall, military vehicle displays, and kid-friendly activities.
The 4th Annual Honor Walk is presented by Circle K and sponsored by the Phoenix Suns, Legends Entertainment District, Lund Mortgage, Lerner & Rowe, Lovitt& Touche and Microsoft.

On-site registration and early registration check-in begins at 6:30 a.m. with pre-walk activities at 8:30 a.m. The walk and fun run start at 9 a.m. Register online at HonorWalk.com/register.
