About This Activity

The David Warsen Legacy Team is hosting a run & walk event in honor of SO2 Navy SEAL David Warsen.  David was a very active person who loved fitness and the outdoors.  As family and friends of David, we want to honor him by celebrating his life and giving nature through a community event.  This event will be held on August 98 2015 and includes a 5K fun run that will take place on the cross-country trail and a 1.5 mile walk on the campus of East Kentwood High School in Kentwood, MI.   

This event is less about speed and more about having fun, like David always did!  Whether you are a serious runner or someone just looking for a way to remember David, this event is for you!  Bring your family for a morning of exercise and fun!   Children 12 and under can walk or run for free WITH AN ADULT (t-shirt not included, but available for purchase at the event). And don't forget your short-shorts for our competition!
