We've unleashed a new Memorial Day Tradition.

On Memorial Day 2020, the No Excuses 5K, presented by Buzz Oates, invites you to run, walk or roll and pay tribute to military heroes, while supporting programs for veterans needing assistance.

No Excuses 5K benefits Canine Companions for Independence®. Through their Veterans Initiative™, life-changing dogs are provided free of charge to help turn on lights, pick up dropped items and so much more. Your dog is invited to join you in your support of this significant program.

The No Excuses 5K and 1-mile walk course winds through William Land Park on a flat, fast and scenic course. Earn your unique commemorative medal when you cross the finish line under the shade of the mature oak trees.

Canine Companions

With the increase in military veterans returning with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Canine Companions is launching a pilot program to directly place service dogs with veterans with PTSD.
