This will be the 8th year for the Illinois Run for the Fallen. We hope you can come out and join us to remember and honor fallen soldiers from the state of Illinois and their families. We’ll be at the track between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each participant will run or walk one mile at the Charleston High School track for a fallen soldier from Illinois that was killed in either Iraq or Afghanistan. You’ll receive a card with information about your soldier, and a flag to plant in the end zone after completing your mile. We hope to have the VFW Honor Guard join us, as well as the JROTC Gladiators drill team.

There is no charge to participate, this event is solely to remember and honor our fallen soldiers and let their families know we have not forgotten them. If you have any questions, please call Vivian Bales at 217-549-0117.

If you have any questions, please contact
