Annual ECU Army ROTC run set for Nov. 12

The ECU Army ROTC “Pirate Battalion” will hold its fourth annual Patriot Run on Nov. 12 to benefit the Fort Bragg Survivor Outreach Services program and the Captain David “Jp” Thompson Scholarship Fund at ECU.

All proceeds will go to Fort Bragg Survivor Outreach Services, which provides support for surviving wives, husbands, parents and children when their family member in the military is killed in action, and to the scholarship fund.

The annual run will begin at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 4 at the Brook Valley Country Club clubhouse; walk-up registration will be held there as well. The five-mile course winds through the Brook Valley neighborhood. A one-mile fun run for kids is also planned.

At the first three Patriot Runs, more than 600 participants along with sponsoring businesses raised more than $23,000 for Fort Bragg charities that benefit military families and Wounded Warrior projects.  This year, race organizers are hoping for 350 runners.

Registration fees are $20 for online advanced registration and $25 on race day. T-shirts will be available for the first 300 registrants. Also, participants can make a donation to run in honor of someone and that soldier’s name will be posted on the Patriot Run’s website.

Sponsors for the Patriot Run include Brook Valley Country Club; Grady White Boats; Physicians East; VFW Post 7032; Colombo, Kitchen, Dunn, Pall and Porter Attorneys; The Roberts Company; Trade Wilco; Japan Inn; Hooters; Buffalo Wild Wings; and Play It Again Sports.

The Patriot Run also plans to have a booth with information on SOS at the Nov. 5 football game against Southern Mississippi, which has been designated as Military Appreciation Day.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to
    get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  2. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning
    this site. I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog
    posts from you in the future as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own blog now ;)

  3. The other day, while I was att work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My applee ipad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off tlpic but I had to shafe it with someone!

  4. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means found any
    fascinating article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me.
    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web
    will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
