5K to Honor Fallen Service Members


There will be a special 5K run this weekend to honor fallen members of the military and to help the families they left behind.

The 2nd annual Windy 25 Memorial 5K will start at 9 a.m. Saturday. The run will start at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The money raised this weekend will go Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors or TAPS. The group provides support and services to people who have a lost a loved one in service of the country.

The race is dedicated to the members of the Windy 25 crew. The group was killed when their Army CH-47 Chinook helicopter crashed in Afghanistan in 2005. During last year’s race, more than $36,000 was raised for TAPS.
