REMINDER: Safely celebrate Independence Day by joining in the ‘Running of The Flags’ this weekend.

Here’s more info from our friends at the Rotary Club of Des Moines & Normandy Park and Destination Des Moines:

Join in this July 4th weekend to honor our Veterans, Military Personnel, First Responders and Volunteers by doing a Run, Walk or Ride a Virtual 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or 1 Mile Course your choosing anywhere in the south end.

Proudly wear Red, White, and Blue, the colors of your country of origin, or the colors that represent you.

Destination Des Moines and Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Celebrate and help unite our communities of people!
