Join us November 11th for the Orange Township 2nd annual Heroes Not Forgotten 5k run/walk. This is an exciting event dedicated to honor veterans.
The money raised for this event will go towards the planned Orange Township Veterans Memorial that will be erected on the corner of Orange Rd and South Old State behind the old Town Hall.
We are looking for teams of a minimum of 5 to carry a flag during the run (walk distance does not apply). Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and POW MIA.
