OPSO Young Marines 5K Walk/Run May 19

NEW ORLEANS - 04-26-2018

Registration is open for the OPSO Young Marines 5K Walk/Run/Bike scheduled to take place starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 19.

For the first time, the annual OPSO race highlights the youth organization which is in the middle of a recruiting and fundraising campaign.

The OPSO Young Marines, open to boys and girls ages 8 to 17, seeks to instill in young people a sense of pride in themselves, their community and country. The Young Marines provides opportunities for young people to develop self-discipline and leadership skills by exposing them to positive adult role models, and providing them with instruction and guidance on a host of topics.

The OPSO Young Marines has invited area Young Marines units and adult military units to also participate in the race. An information table will be set up at the race to sign up new members.

Entry fee for the Young Marines 5K is $10; and $5 for the kid's half-mile run.

Proceeds from the race will be used to fund Young Marines activities including an upcoming summer camp in Robert, La.
