Saginaw County Veterans 5K Run-Walk

All weekend long veterans are celebrated throughout Mid-Michigan.

The Saginaw County Veterans Memorial Plaza hosted its annual 5K Run-Walk fundraiser.

For just $25 each person got a commemorative t-shirt and a bag filled with local items.

Those who took part say they’re happy to get some exercise and give back.

“There’s a need out there to help those less unfortunate, Again giving back to the community, representing yourself and representing Saginaw,” said James Hernandez.

Sunday there will be a Veterans Day service.

It will mark the 100th anniversary of World War I.

It happens at Veterans Memorial Plaza at 11 a.m.
