About This Activity

The POW/MIA 12 Hour Run/Walk is sponsoredby Air Force Sergeants Association Chapter 479.  The idea behind the event is to honor those who have given so much to ensure we enjoy our freedoms.  The POW Flag will remain in motion during the entire 12 hour event.  There will be sign-ups to honor and carry the flag the day of the event.  Individuals and Teams can come and run/walk as long as they want. The team idea is to split to event (relay style) for the full 12 hours.
