Veterans Day is coming up and Flower Mound is busy planning its fourth annual Veterans Day Relay Run set for Friday, November 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Town is looking for relay participants to run a portion of a pre-determined 45 mile route which traverses around Flower Mound. Each relay runner will run approximately one to two mile sections, commemorating our nation’s veterans and their service by carrying the American flag. The course will start and end at the Flower Mound Community Activity Center (CAC), 1200 Gerault Rd. and will be followed by a post-event celebration from 5 to 6 p.m. at the CAC. Relay runners must be registered by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 27, and can do so by completing an online form found here: www.flower-mound.com/relay. Please note, all runners will receive a commemorative T-shirt, and priority will be given to local veterans who register to participate, and those running in honor of a veteran family member. As in years past, everyone is invited to run the final mile of the all-day relay run. Interested residents should meet at Shadow Ridge Middle School, located at 2050 Aberdeen Drive, at approximately 4:15 p.m. to run in the final leg to the CAC where the post-event celebration will be held.
The Town is looking for organizations or businesses to sponsor the Veterans Day Relay Run.

This year all proceeds will go to support the Veterans Collaborative of North Texas, a nonprofit organization which helps veterans and their families obtain affordable housing in Denton County.
