KALAMAZOO--Runners, walkers and spectators of every age are invited to take part in Western Michigan University's second annual Wounded Warrior 5K race Saturday, April 9.

The non-certified Wounded Warrior course winds through East Campus, with a start and finish line near WMU's ROTC Building on Cass Street, which is adjacent to Wheaton Avenue off Oakland Drive. Signs and volunteers will direct participants to designated parking lots.

Packet pickup and late registration will begin at 7 a.m., and the race starts at 9 a.m. Registration is $15 and includes post-race refreshments and a T-shirt. This is not an officially timed race.

WMU's Wounded Warrior 5k is sponsored by the University's Army and Air Force ROTC programs. All proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization that provides care directly to wounded veterans and their families.

For more information and to register, visit Wounded Warrior online or call Andrea Smith, race coordinator, at (269) 235-2789.
