Sixth annual Old Glory Run May 18 _ The 18,000 member Minne- sota Disabled American Veteran (DAV) organization is once again announcing plans for the sixth annual Old Glory Run in Cold Spring scheduled for May 18. This event was first organized by local Cold Spring/St. Cloud area vol- unteers Curt and Pare Karls in 200Z They have continued organizing and coordinating the event and have played a significant role in providing "funds raised through this event to the Minn. Disabled American Veterans organization. Minnesota State DAV Commander Bob Erickson recently stated "Curt and Pam Kafls have become,heroes to the veterans we serve in this Central Minnesota com- munity. One of our primaryprograms here is providing free transportation for veterans who need transportation to and from their medical appoint- ments at the St. Cloud VA medical center as a part of the VA/DAV trans- portation program. We have pur- chased three new Ford vans driven by DAV volunteers to transport these veterans ... and as a result of Curt and Pams generosity and gift of time and talents, we have many area veterans enjoying a better quality of life". The Minn. DAV asks that inter- ested runners, walkers, and friends of the DAV mark May 18, on their calendars and consider being a par- ticipant, sponsor, volunteer and/or a spectator. Once again, this year, all pro- ceeds for our event will go to the DAV of Minnesota Foundation to be used by them to serve veterans, espe- cially disabled veterans in our St. Cloud area community. We are so proud to have played a key financial role with funds raised in past years in funding a brand new van used by the DAV and the St. Cloud VA Med- ical Center to transport area vet- erans in need of transportation to and from their VA medical appoint- ments at the local VA Medical Cen- ter. In addition, funds have been pro- vided for a planned "wellness area" (walking trails, shelters, etc.) on the St. Cloud VA campus for veterans and the community.
