About This Activity

The True to the Blue 5K 

We invite you to join the True to the Blue 5K on Embry-Riddle’s campus in Daytona Beach on October 14, 2017.  The True to the Blue 5K will honor one of Embry-Riddle's first graduates of the Homeland Security program, Ashley Guindon.  Ashley was a Marine Corps veteran who was tragically killed in the line of duty on her first day on the job as a Police Officer serving Prince William County, VA. on February 27, 2016. Funds raised from the 5K Run & Walk will benefit the Ashley Guindon Memorial Scholarship.

This run will start and end next to a display of airplanes flown by alumni of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.  Race participants will have the opportunity to enter the display area and look at the planes after the race. The True to the Blue 5K is organized by Embry-Riddle's Student Veterans Organization, Homeland Security Student Association, and the Order of the Sword and Shield.
