2nd Annual Heroes Not Forgotten 5K run

Heroes Not Forgotten 5k Graphic 2017.jpg
Orange Township is pleased to announce our 2nd Annual Heroes Not Forgotten 5K run which will be held on Saturday, November 11th from 8:00am – 12:00pm at Olentangy Orange High School.  This year we are looking for flag teams to carry a flag during the run for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and POW MIA.

To truly honor our veterans, monies raised for this event will go towards the planned Orange Township Veterans Memorial that will be placed at the corner of E. Orange and S. Old State Roads behind our Old Township Hall.  The goal was to make the memorial unique with local input; the memorial itself was designed by Olentangy Orange High School Student, Amelia Dewey.  Matt Croghar and Kyle Benecke, also Olentangy Orange High School Students, came up with the theme “Heroes Not Forgotten.”

If you are unable to attend the run and would like to make a donation, please note that a special fund has been established with the Delaware County Foundation, a non-profit community foundation that will manage the donations.  You can visit them at www.delawarecf.org and click on the PayPal donate button on their home page.  At the end of the process enter the name of the fund: Orange Township Veterans Memorial.  PayPal automatically deducts their fee before we receive any money; therefore, if you have a significant gift, we recommend a check be mailed to the Foundation.  Checks should be made payable to the Delaware County Foundation.  Please note Orange Township Veterans Memorial in the memo line of the check.  Gifts should be mailed to Delaware County Foundation, 3954 N. Hampton Dr. Powell, OH 43065.
