Invite your family, friends and neighbors to join us for Concord’s Inaugural Veteran’s Day 10K/5K Run/Walk presented by Contra Costa Blue Star Moms Chapter 20.  This Veteran’s Day race was created to raise awareness and show support for our many local veterans and raise money to provide support for active duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations and assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong.
