Location: Chestnut Ridge Park
The KIA Memorial Road March is a 10K ruck march through Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park, NY. It is a fun and challenging way to remember those members of our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
Participants will march in one of four categories - Individual, Team (2 Marchers), Squad (4 Marchers) or Platoon (10 Marchers) while carrying rucks filled with canned goods. Participants will carry a minimum amount of weight, depending on which category they march in.
Although designed with the military in mind, the March is open to all – current / retired military, first responders, civilians. We just recommend you train – it’s not as easy as you think!
The KIA Memorial Road March raises funds to help support Veterans organizations in Western New York. Post-event all canned goods will be donated to the Vietnam Veterans Chapter 77 and the Buffalo State College Veterans Food Pantry to help Veterans in need.
