Wreaths Across America
5K Fun Run/Walk

Help Support Wreath Laying at the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI on Wreaths Across America Day!
REMEMBER - our fallen U.S. veterans.
HONOR - those who serve.
TEACH - your children the value of freedom.
Proceeds from registration are being donated directly to Wreaths Across America and are designated for wreaths going to the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI on December 17, 2022.
While we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, our servicemen and women sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year, to preserve our freedoms. And in many homes across the U.S., every day there is an empty seat for one who is serving, or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. That is why our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach lasts all year long, far beyond the single day in December when we coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies. All throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works in a number of ways to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget.
