Cadence to celebrate Memorial Day

Wear blue: run to remember (wear blue), a national, nonprofit organization committed to building a running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military, is once again proud to announce its annual A Walk to Remember Memorial Day event. On Monday, more than 20,000 runners and walkers around the world will become a living memorial to America’s fallen heroes.

The Southern Nevada event will be held at Cadence’s Central Park near the pool complex and Fitness Court, 1015 E. Sunset Road from 8 to 10 a.m. Runners and walkers of all skill levels and ages are encouraged to participate in the nontimed event.

“Since 2017, Cadence has partnered with wear blue to honor our fallen heroes,” said Cheryl Gowan, spokesperson for The LandWell Co., developer of Cadence. “We are proud to continue this annual tradition and pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of battle.”

The wear blue A Walk to Remember run will use the power of community and the accessibility of running and walking for community members to become a living memorial through their steps to honor generations of America’s fallen heroes.

Participants will be provided the name of an American service member who died in battle, and receive a unique bib to share the name of the service member whom they honor with their steps.

“Wear blue: run to remember gives people all over the world the opportunity to honor our service members who selflessly gave their life for our freedoms,” said President, Co-Founder and Gold Star Wife Lisa Hallett. “This Memorial Day run will serve as a moving memorial of remembrance from all branches, and all wars, including World War I.”

Space for the event is limited and registration is required. For more information about Cadence and to register for the event, visit cadencenv.com/event/memorial-day-walk/.
