Want to be a race sponsor?

Interested in sponsoring the race:

Our 3rd Annual AJ Arnett 5K Honor Run will be held on Saturday May 19th, 2018.   The race starts and finishes at Concordia Lutheran High School. Over the last 3 years we have been able to donate over $24,000 to Honor Flights of Northeast Indiana and Shepherd’s House.  Our goal is to raise even more for our worthy Veterans then we did last year.  We are looking for Businesses and Individuals to be sponsors of this year’s race.  This is an excellent opportunity to support our local Veterans and to give back to the Fort Wayne Community.  It is also an amazing way to show pride in our military, as the race takes place on Armed Forces Day.   Additionally, this event is second to none because of our outstanding Race Director, Mr. Mitch Harper who is well known in the racing community.

We estimate that there will be 500-700 racers at the event. Our participants range from 5 to 70 years of age.  We have received publicity on local news channels and radio stations. We also have a Facebook page that can be found HERE.

Our race is named in Honor of A.J. Arnett. SPC A.J. Arnett, a 2004 Concordia Lutheran High School graduate entered the U.S. Army in June of 2004, leaving the day after graduation.  A.J. deployed to Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division in January 2005.  On July 13, while on patrol in Baghdad, A.J. was seriously wounded in a car bomb attack that resulted in the death of one Soldier and seriously wounding another Soldier in his squad.

Suffering shrapnel and blast wounds to his leg, A.J. underwent multiple surgeries to repair the extensive damage to his leg. At one point, he was told that he would never run again, but A.J. persevered and continues to run multiple long distance events.  He has become a fixture in our local running community.
