This 5k is in honor of Sgt. Ryan Lane, USMC. Sgt. Lane gave the ultimate sacrifice to our nation when he refused a promotion allowing him to deploy with his fellow Marines for a second time. Sgt. Ryan Lane was killed in action during this second deployment. His love of country and sacrifice for it sparked patriotism among students at Duquesne University who started the run in his honor in 2009.
This year, in addition to proceeds benefiting student veterans, a portion of the proceeds will help to fund a service dog for a veteran in need, as part of the Gaurdian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc.
