Thanks Minnesota - August 2017


August 2017

Dear Friends of Minnesotans’ Military Appreciation Fund,

The 13th annual Say Thanks Day is right around the corner on Saturday, August 19 at the Boy Scout Base Camp.

Check out our new t-shirt design!

New this year: Registration is free for cross country student runners. And as always, the event is free for all service members and their immediate families, Scouts and kids 12 and under. Spread the word! (Everyone must register, even if free.)

After the 5K run or 1-mile walk, stick around to enjoy family-friendly activities including a parachute jump by The Patriot Parachute Team, climbing wall, kids’ carnival and more. Maverick from K102 Radio will emcee the event, and there will be live music from the Emerson Avenue Band.
