10th Annual VFW 805 .1K
April 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$30
The VFW 805 .1K is a fun, zany, wacky, all-ages, family event put on by Sgt. Charles A. Fricke VFW Post 805 in downtown O’Fallon, IL to raise funds for the VFW and the Post 805 Troop Support Fund. At the length of about one city block, it is a short distance that anyone can finish in pretty much any manner that matches their skills and abilities. The short distance is long on impact as much of the funds assist veterans and military families. VFW Post 805 is the Home of the Original VFW .1K. In 2014, the VFW Post in Naperville, Illinois saw our event and has held its own .1 K every year since. Other posts have hopped on the .1K bandwagon and the VFW National Homefor Children has also hosted several .1K fun runs as well. We are proud this super-fun idea has caught on, as well as to say that over $210,000 has been raised to help veterans and their families through the VFW .1K fundraisers that have been held so far. With your help, we can keep adding to those numbers.
