The Base Camp Lindsey March of Honor is our annual signature event. It is not only a fundraiser to benefit the construction of Base Camp Lindsey, it is our way of providing insight into the plight of our homeless Veterans and to honor all Veterans.
This year we will have three courses: the original 10-mile course, a 5-mile, and 1-mile course. The 10- and 5-mile courses offer competition for bragging rights. We have also introduced weight categories for competing courses and some great new challenges.
The event takes place on November 14, 2020 and the starting point will be the American Legion Post at Lake Wichita, Wichita Falls, TX. Online registration begins on May 1, 2020. There is also an on-site registration for an additional $5.00.
To register online, click on the ‘Register Here’ button under the photo on the left. You will then be re-directed to the registration page.
Our suggestion is for you to fill your pack with at least 25 pounds of non-perishable food and hygiene items to be distributed at our December Stand-down event for homeless Veterans.
Items that are needed:
- Non-perishable food items – canned chili, beans, vegetables, and fruit. A favorite is Spaghetti-O’s. Snack food such as crackers, cheese and crackers, nuts, raisins, granola bars, protein bars, trail mix, peanut butter, crackers, etc. Sugar-free candy and gum are also good. (Remember, the homeless can’t always cook or heat their food, so please don’t include dried beans or rice).
