For the 11th year in a row, Run for the Wall made a refueling and lunch stop in Concordia.

The stop came on Monday, May 20, as the rolling event makes its way to Washington, D.C., for a Memorial Day celebration. Organizer Lori Wilson said there are a lot of people and businesses involved locally to pull off such an event. She especially wanted to thank the city of Concordia, American Legion Post No. 258 and American Legion Auxiliary Post No. 258, VFW Post No. 5649 and VFW Auxiliary Post No. 5649, and Tyson Foods.

This is the 31st year of Run for the Wall. The ride consists of a 10-day journey that crosses America’s heartland from coast-to-coast, raising awareness for POW/MIAs, supporting our current and former military, and providing a healing environment for veterans, veteran families, and supporters.
