Freedom Golf Association's "Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk," October 15, is a fun way to "give disabled people the opportunity to do what everyone else can do," says Sally Ruecking, FGA's Vice President of Strategic Advancement. The public is encouraged to join Freedom Golf Association on Sunday, October 15 at McDonald's Corporate Campus (2915 Jorie Blvd. at 31st Street, Oak Brook, Illinois 60523) to honor Veterans who have been wounded in their service to the country. The event also will raise funds to support adaptive golf programs for these individuals. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m. The Honor Wounded Vets 5K Run/Walk will include timed and untimed tracks in Men's, Women's and Wheelchair Divisions. Additional activities include vendor booths, chipping and putting demonstrations, a contest to drive onto a floating green and the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of McDonald's Hamburger University. Live music will be provided by the Elmhurst College Jazz Band. Participants of all ages can learn more and register at http://www.fgagolf.org/honor-wounded-vets-5k-runwalk.html.
